Hot Water Beach: The Beach on a Hot Spring



I really want to visit New Zealand, a land that seems filled with wonders. There's a beach on the North Island where geothermal energy heats the sand. It can get as hot as 147° F, so visitors often dig hot tubs into the beach. View more pictures and a video at the link.

My wife and I had a kind of hot-spring tour in Japan, and we went to what's called a sunaburo (sand bath) or sunamushi (sand steam) beach in Ibusuki, Kagoshima. They have people that shovel the stuff on to you while you relax.
