ITINERARY

WHITIANGA - HOT WATER BEACH

33KM - 31 MINS

 

DEPART WHITIANGA FOR HOT WATER BEACH

With only a 30min drive to Hot Water Beach, you could afford to spend a wee bit more time exploring the surrounding area before departing!

Especially with Whitianga being a great kick off point for a boat trip to explore the sheltered Mercury Bay and the Te-Whanganui-a-Hei marine reserve off Cathedral Cove.

Once you've had your fill of salty ocean air, get back on the road heading for Hot Water Beach, which is unique kiwi experience! An underground river of hot water flows from the interior of the Earth to surface in the Pacific Ocean just off shore at Hot Water Beach.
