    If you’re looking for a little workout with your relaxation, head to New Zealand’s Hot Water Beach, where you have to dig your own spot to soak. Before and after low tides, the hole you dig will fill with spring-fed water that contains plenty of natural minerals. Located south of the North Island’s Mercury Bay, this is a communal beach area that’s especially popular during the December-to-March summer months.

    Be sure to show within 2 hours either side of low tide. We did not, but still got to dig a small foot pool. Look for the rocks for the best spot ;).

    Great place to grab something to eat at the parking lot while you wait for 2 or 1:30 before the low tide. After that just rent a spade and start digging. Its all about locación, not depth.

    Make sure you get at the beach during the low tide.

    Gets very busy in the summer but try the evening/ late night high tide instead!
