Pancake Rocks and Blowholes are a popular tourist destination in Punakaiki, West Coast, New Zealand. The photo was taken from ‘Putai’, the famous spot to see the spectacular rocks.
According to DOC (Department of Conservation), “They were formed 30 million years ago from minute fragments of dead marine creatures and plants landed on the seabed about 2 km below the surface. Immense water pressure caused the fragments to solidify in hard and soft layers. Gradually seismic action lifted the limestone above the seabed. Mildly acidic rain, wind and seawater sculpted the bizarre shapes.” (http://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/places-to-visit/west-coast/buller-area/punakaiki-pancake-rocks-and-blowholes/).
