It doesn't matter how many times I visit the pancake rocks and blowholes at Punakaiki, I always
find it an amazing spectacular place to experience. You can spend as long as you like there,
walk around the well maintained pathway as often as you like and the best part is it is all free, another amazing thing in this day and age. We New Zealanders (ex-pat like me) or residents should never take the beauty of our country for granted as it is truly amazing and something to be proud of.

Not only a beautiful walk but a well set up and easy going walk. Take the quick 30min stroll, ooooo and ahhhh over what you see, but make sure you bring your camera!

We were driving past and it was a nice break on our journey. I have never seen rocks like this so it was interesting and a nice 20 minute circuit.

it was raining hard and blowing even harder but we were determined to see the rocks. amazing the force of the water and on a fine day at high tide it must look great. unfortunately it was a very quick walk around holding onto hats and rails then back to the nearby toilets for a complete change of clothes and to get dry.

This is the second year in a row that we have visited Pancake Rocks. It's such an exciting natural wonder and I highly recommend it if you are in the area. Make sure you visit it at high tide to get the most from the experience.
