On the Westcoast of South Island is the well known Punakaika. This is where the mountain meets the ocean and with favorable climate and rainfall, there is temperate dense rainforest of palms and ferns with unique rock formation like pancakes and holes where the waves create spurts of sea fountains.

There is an excellent visitor center to explain all the details of this rich diversity in one location. Nice stop to enjoy this nature phenomena.
