Around 20 minutes drive from Tauranga City Centre is the seaside village of Omokoroa. The area has long been known for it's thermal activity, and not surprisingly has it's own thermal pools. The pools are part of the Omokoroa Thermal Holiday Park meaning you can stay here as long as you like.
The three pools are kept between 35 - 39 degrees year round. They are filled with the natural mineral water that comes up to the surface below the grounds. The main pool is multi-purpose with a deep end and shallow end. There is a hexangonal pool which at waist height is ideal for children. There is also a smaller adults only pool kept at 39 degrees.
Note that this is not an aquatic centre. The 3 outdoor pools are all side by side in the main pool area. It's a peaceful area with a great outlook and family atmosphere. When your children are swimming please make sure they are supervised.
The holiday park is like your traditional camping ground with all the facilities you'd expect. There are powered sites, tent sites and comfortable cabins which we have staye din ourselves.
Holiday park guests can use the pools for free. But of course you don't need to stay at the park to access the pools. Just visit reception, and you can spend the day relaxing by the pool with family and friends. Admission is under $10 each , with family discounts available. See their website for more details.
