Pancake Rocks

Down in the South Island on the West coast, between Westport and Greymouth lies the natural Punakaiki aka Pancake Rocks. We were lucky enough to get there around sunset, so the lighting was perfect. It’s inside Paparoa National Park. Why are these rocks special? They are on the coast created from  Dolomite Point limestone, and they create an illusion of a pile of pancakes. And when it’s high tide the water goes through these blowholes creating a little cool show. You have to check the times if you want to see this; when we went it was low tide, so we didn’t see any big blows. Again thanks to DOC, they created a 15 minute loop to see these amazing rocks! I hope this encourages you to travel! Bon Voyage 🙂
