    The famous Pancake, formed by erosion, acquiring wonderful forms due to strong wind, rain along with seawater, with small holes by where they are waves, creating a visual spectacle when the tide. Easy access to the coast, as there are comfortable and beautiful trails enjoying the Tasman Sea for a relaxing walk.
