Hot Water Beach
Naturally heated mineral water bubbles up from deep within the earth to emerge through the sand at the appropriately named Hot Water Beach.

Near the rocks at the southern end of the beach, you can dig your own spa pool in the sand - start digging two hours either side of low tide. It's a strange but very pleasant feeling to be lying in a pool of hot water just metres from the comparatively cold sea.

If you have a suitable digging implement, bring it with you. Otherwise you may be able to hire a spade from the local general store.

From the hot water area, the long sandy beach stretches north and curves east under a headland. Here you?ll find sheltered and secluded spots for quiet, sleepy sunbathing.

For surfers, Hot Water Beach has good beach breaks in moderate easterly swells. However the presence of strong undertows means this beach is often dangerous for swimming.
