Punakaiki

Punakaiki was the first beach town that I visited in New Zealand.  I felt like I was suddenly dropped into tropical paradise.  I walked on the beach and found great tide pools.  Also, Punakaiki is famous for the "Pancake Rock" formations.  I stayed in a wonderful place, the Punakaiki Beach Hostel, which was right on the beach.
