Coromandel and the “Hot Water Beach”

Posted by admin On March - 4 - 2006

On the way to Coromandel an old gold-digger town and to the famous “Hot Water Beach” we stop at the Mercury Bay where I took some nice first pictures of the shore. While posing for a picture I felt so freezing because it quite cold and windy that day. So smiling was difficult…
Arrived in Coromandel we had breakfast. But the town is famous for it´s fish as well that´s why I walked straight to the fish shop and tried some smoked tuna. Mmmmhhhh delicious.
On the way to our backpacker in Whenuakite we saw this wonderful waterfall. It was actually my first waterfall on this trip so I got all excited.  Later we passed the Kauri Grove. Kauri is the famous New Zealand tree who grows hundred of years to be as big as a Redwood tree in North America. In fact they say in New Zealand grows the oldest tree on earth – a Kauri. Unfortunately the photos can’t show the giants in a more impressive way.
In the afternoon we checked in at the bagpacker “Sea Breeze” in Whenuakite. It was the worst one of all bagpacker. We had problems with hot water and we felt not comfortable there…The only good thing was, that you got your spade for the Hot Water beach for free. Because it makes no sense to experience that beach without a spade! Yesterday we had checked the times of the tights because it is nessesary to come at the right time if you wanna do the hot-water-experience. First you have to find a good place then you start diggin a kind of tub. You need to have some water in there beforehand. Important is the fact that the deeper you dig the hoter will be your water. Finally I burned my butt during sitting on a quite hot spot. Literally!
