Photo: Tasman Sea Cliff

Covered in lush greenery and blossoming flowers, the steep cliff heads straight down into the Tasman Sea along Glacier Highway on the South Island of New Zealand.

While driving the Glacier Highway on the West Coast of the South Island, stand on the cliff at Knights Point and enjoy the real beauty of New Zealand. The scenery is stunning as you look out over the Tasman Sea and the miles of emptiness over the horizon.

A fog bank limits the distance you can see but the sun's rays still manage to shine through and glisten off the surface of the Tasman Sea. Large rock formations sit off the point as the sea swaddles behind them and the waves crash in along the base of the cliff.

Lush green trees and plants flourish on the cliff side amongst beautiful white and pink flowers like those in the foreground. Many types of flowers and vegetation thrive along the cliffs and peaks that tower over the Tasman Sea as the soil and climate is ideal.

The Tasman Sea covers approximately 1250 miles and is a massive sized body of water that lies between Australia and New Zealand. ... continue below the picture...
