tokaanu thermal pools

Tokaanu is in an active volcanic area where very hot water bubbles out of the ground due to volcanic activity.  

In many places, cool water is added to the mineral water from the ground and then offered to the public as spa baths. Click here for locations and some history.

The steam from this underground activity is also harnessed for commercial use. Click here for more information.
