Naturally heated mineral water bubbles up from deep within the earth to emerge through golden sand at the appropriately named Hot Water Beach. Near the rocks at the southern end of the beach you can dig your own spa pool in the sand. Dig up to two hours either side of low tide opens in new window — that's when the tide is low enough to expose the area of sand with hot water underneath. It's a strange but very pleasant feeling to be lying in a pool of hot water just metres from the refreshing sea. If you have a spade or shovel, bring it with you. Otherwise you can hire one from the local cafes. From the hot water area, the long sandy beach stretches north and curves east under a headland. Here you'll find sheltered and secluded spots for quiet, sleepy sunbathing. For surfers, Hot Water Beach has good beach breaks in moderate easterly swells, however the presence of strong undertows means this beach is often dangerous for swimming.

Where to Next
Most people know that adults need to drink about eight glasses of water per day, but keeping babies hydrated has some special considerations. Water makes up about 60 percent of human bodies. We constantly lose water through urine, sweat and breathing. So how do we replace all the water we lose and stay well-hydrated? They do not need extra water. After 6 months of age, it is safe to give babies water. Introducing sippy cups with water at this age is a great idea.
