Coromandel Hot Pools

The Hot Pools of the Coromandel Peninsula

The Coromandel hills were formed hundreds of millions of years ago in a maelstrom of tilting earth blocks, earthquakes, fracture lines oozing fiery lavas, boiling pools and gushing steam. The fiery lavas helped build up gold and silver deposits, some of which are being mined today and the steam and hot water has moderated and become a unique set of Hot Pools for the enjoyment of the holidaymaker!

Do the Hot Pools Tour – Summer and Winter

If you are coming from Auckland or the Auckland International Airport the best starting point is the Miranda Pools (less than one hour from the Airport) refer map then head south to Te Aroha, on to Athenree then up the east coast to Hot Water Beach and Whitianga. It's good summer and winter!

The Unique Te Aroha Hot Pools

The translation of the Maori name is 'The Place of Love' and the flowing, naturally hot soda water has made it a favourite place since history began. The well maintained hot pools in the Te Aroha Domain with the original Edwardian spa buildings are a highlight of the entire region. The naturally hot, theraputic soda water is unique to Te Aroha.

The Domain also includes a free, hot, foot bath for trampers and walkers (make new friends as you soak those tired feet) and the Mokena Geyser which is the world's only hot water soda geyser.

Athenree Hot Springs
Athenree Holiday Park

Athenree Hot Springs and Holiday Park

These pools are within the Holiday Park grounds. All ages are welcome in the large pool but it's adults only in the small hotter pool, sorry kids. There is a constant flow of the pure, soft water which feels wonderful to the skin. Both pools are drained and scrubbed every evening so we can guarantee you will always find them spotlessly clean. For your safety the pools are monitored with a security camera. Opening hours are 8.30am – 7.30pm and the pools are FREE if you are staying at the park.

Hot Water Beach - Hot Pools
Hot Water Beach

Hot Water Beach

Hot Water Beach is a new experience – dig a personal hole in the warm beach sand, it will quickly fill with hot water then settle in for a hot mineral water spa bath! It's good fun summer and winter, but plan your day - the spa area is only uncovered when the tide is out. The hot water only happens near the rocky outcrop a short distance up the beach from the carpark. Spades for digging your pool are available at most accommodation places or at the beach shop.

WARNING! - Swimming in the sea at Hot Water Beach can be dangerous - do not swim in the surf unless you are a good swimmer!
