The breakers dash against the rocky coast. The water breaks into a natural cave, forces its way into a narrowing tunnel, then finds, under enormous pressure, a way out to the surface through a vertical blowhole …


That the sudden blasts of water up in the air appear amidst a landscape of eroded pancake rocks is yet another attraction of Punakaiki!
