International House of Punakaiki

We visited the pancake rocks at Punakaiki in 2014 and also in 2009. Again, in 2018, we were trying to hit the rocks at high tide, to see the blow-hole in full action. Alas...



Pancakes


Blowhole reservoir


Blowhole...down there...apparently has Monday off...the DOC
ranger person explained that the winds have to be from the
southwest (which they were not) for it to work; I have now
officially given up on Punakaiki

Major pancakes






























Us, there, at high tide

Double rainbow over the  nearby campground later


And a walk on the beach

I think the first blowhole we ever saw was in Portugal. Several in Hawaii last summer. Sorry you missed this one!
