Waikato: Central North Island road trip


Hot Water Beach, Kawhia @The Elsewhere Kiddo Hot Water Beach, Kawhia @The Elsewhere Kiddo

Kawhia is quintessential coastal New Zealand with family owned fishing vessels tied up to the local wharf. Camp sites nestled under trees in sight of the sea and sand. Make time for a special place where a remote iron sand beach yields natural hot pools at low tide. Ocean beach or hot water beach with its iron black sand dunes is an exercise in fortitude as you trudge over the soft hot iron sands exposed to the elements in search of warm bubbling geothermal water. It’s worth the effect. The West Coast beach is all about drama. Thundering waves on an ocean beach and hardly a soul present.  At low tide, spade in hand dig for the thermal Te Puia Springs to seep into your impromptu spa pool.
