The Moeraki Boulders are spherical stones as you can observe on the above picture. These Moeraki Boulders are mostly found near Moeraki on the beach of Koekohe Beach which is in the south of Hampden on Otago in New Zealand. The boulders have a grey color, they got these forms because of the shoreline erosion and emerged from the cliffs that was at the back of the beach. This happened with time of course. The boulders are very heavy in weight; they can weigh up to several tons and in general have three meters in diameter. While visiting the beach of Koekohe, it is a spectacular view that you will have, it looks so extraordinary to see these boulders on the beach as if they were just put there as decoration. The Moeraki Boulders are unique to South Island of New Zealand.
