Guest Questions

What is the bucket for?

To carry cold water to adjust the temperature of the hot water in the pit you will dig at the beach.

Is the water really hot at Hot Water Beach?

Yes. It is boiling.

Can you surf at Hot Water Beach?

Yes it is a great surf beach as well as a real tourist destination for the hot water that comes up in the sand on the beach. It is also a very dangerous beach for swimming, so best to only swim if there are life guards on duty and if so - swim between the flags. There are bad rips around the rocks just in front of where the hot water is.
