Hot Water Beach, near Whitianga, Coromandel Peninsula, North Island, New Zealand

The highlight of a visit to Hot Water Beach is to dig a hole in the sand at low tide and create your own hot water spa. As you can see from the steam rising in the above picture, the water can be extremely hot, so care is needed!

To obtain the best appreciation of the quality of the images on this site, they should be displayed at a relatively small size, because each image has been reduced in size to a maximum width of only 870 pixels, from the original width of at least 4900 pixels (or 6000 pixels from my full frame cameras). In addition, the images have been saved at a low quality setting.
