Driving north from Dunedin, the Moeraki boulders make a good stopping point. And these are very unique large spherical boulders.
The beach is also very nice, with a good cafe and excellent chocolate ice-cream located above the beach!! We enjoyed a swim and paddle there before moving on.
The most important thing here is to time your visit with low tide – they do a disappearing act in high tide and loose their impressive impact. Also not a beach suited to buggies – we saw a couple of people struggling with them.
