The Pancake Rocks and Punakaiki Blow Holes

The Pancake Rocks and Punakaiki Blow Holes

The Pancake Rocks and Blow Holes are limestone formations over 30 million years old. Over the years, deceased lime-rich marine life would settle on the sea floor and has since been covered by layers of mud and clay. Over time the limestone has been moulded into extraordinary shapes by the wind and waves. Take a stroll from Punakaiki Resort, only 300 metres from the famous attraction at high tide for the optimum experience.
