Koekohe Beach, New Zealand

Along the Otago cost of New Zealand, these strangely spherical boulders can be found in clusters on the Koekohe Beach. Scientists believe the Moeraki Boulders were carved from mudstone and shaped by waves and landslide but local Māori legend cites the masses as the remains of a shipwreck from hundreds of years ago. Either way, these monster rocks (some can have a diameter of over 7 feet) are beautiful and need to be witnessed in person. Tip: get there at sunrise. Not only for the beautiful lighting, but also to catch the low tide.
