The Great Coast Road, Greymouth to Westport, voted one of the top ten coastal drives in the world. Guess what?…… I live here!
After a walk around the famous Pancake Rock and blowholes in Punakaiki, Stephen and I headed a little further north to get some photos from the Irimahuwhero lookout point. The photo above is looking north towards Westport. The drive follows the coastline for approximately 50kms and then winds its way through some beautiful native Beech Forest before meeting with Westport.
This one is looking south, back towards Punakaiki and the pancake rock formations. Gorgeous little beach here called Truman beach. The bush walk leading down to it is quite stunning too. Voted one of the best short walks in New Zealand. Yes, we have lots of the best of everything here on the West Coast tee hee.
Seriously though, we are pretty spoilt. The might of the Tasman Sea and some stunning native rain forest and national parks.
Views galore. Remote beaches – both sandy and stoney.
and to die for lookout points. Did I mention…… I live here?……..
Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation on the Great Coast Road, north of Greymouth. They love to get out and explore the many wonders that help make up the West Coast and enjoy sharing their adventures.
