Koekohe Beach

Koekohe Beach, alternatively known as Moeraki Boulders Beach, is a picturesque sandy coastline situated in the southeast region of New Zealand. Located just 4 kilometers from the town of Hampden, the beach stands out from others in the area due to the presence of the Moeraki Boulders - an array of distinctive round rocks. These boulders boast a unique shape that's almost completely spherical and differ from most other beach rocks. Additionally, they're of large proportions with some weighing several tonnes and standing up to two meters tall, and have an age of approximately 65 million years. According to Maori legend, they were originally massive gourds from a great voyaging canoe that were lost to the sea.

Visitor Reviews

Visitor reviews highlight that the Moeraki Boulders Beach is a must-visit for those looking for a unique photo opportunity with large spherical boulders on a sandy beach. However, some visitors feel that the boulders are overhyped and look like regular rocks. Some complain that there is a fee for parking at the cafe, but free parking is available at a public park with a slightly longer walk.
