On Te Kouma Road, park at the Sugarloaf Wharf carpark and head around the headland to see the remnants of the Ariki Tahi Pa site, once the stronghold of the area. Take in views of the Te Kouma Bay and you'll reach Hannaford's Jetty, from which fishing charter boats and the 360 Discovery Auckland Ferry arrive and depart. The next bay beyond is Heards Bay where you walk must end, since the next bay is private. Enroute back, after Hannaford's Jetty, you can choose to walk up Kowhai Dr for a 30 minute bush walk that's signposted on the road, offering great views of Te Kouma Harbour. Distance 1.4kms one way from Sugarloaf Wharf carpark to Hannaford's Wharf. Distance 700m one way from Jetty to Heard's Bay.
