Sleep there with our van after doing the digging thing around 8.30pm as the low tide were a bit late that day. We where 3 vans in total to spend the night, no one came to check.



Absolutely beautiful spot, especially at sunset. We sat in some warm water and dug our feet down to where it was hotter. Not as hot or as crowded as the other Hot Water Beach.



Great spot, only a few people. We went there in the evening and weren't lucky because the low tide was not very low and it was hard to keep our hot water pool hot.Others were telling us they found the perfect spot in the morning, the water was so hot they couldn't even sit in the pool.
