on spacious beach, but as it s a hot spot it s full of tourists even on sunrise, at least you are near the Moeraki Lighthouse that is more genuine !

Stopped off here on way to Oamaru from Dunedin. There is a large free car park (with a very large pothole on the entrance drive) and the beach is a short walk from here. 5 minutes from the steps on to the beach we came across the series of boulders being perfectly round and in small groups. Worth a short photo stop being such an unusual feature. There is also a cafe and separate gift shop. Time spent here was about an hour.

Nice place to visit but be aware that tour buses stop at this location so when ordering in the cafe or trying to take pictures of the boulders you may have to wait awhile. There are a few steep steps leading down to the beach to view the boulders but once on the beach it is only a short walk to the boulders.

While I never looked into why these stones were found here or how they were formed I have it from second hand authority them at their formative origins are unknown. You can get there via a cafe where there us an optional fee to pay for the walkway to the beach at a cafe, or you can walk down for nothing if you get off the road earlier near Fleurs. Up to you I guess.

The boulders while round, also are stones and due to their weight do not usually do anything other than offer photo opportunities, for this they are exceptional.
