Te Ana o Hau

Te Ana o Hau

Te Ana O Hau is the rocky section of shoreline along what is now SH59 between Paekākāriki and Pukerua Bay. This is now a relaxed coastal drive with some obvious stopping points, including a large parking area just before the road climbs the hill to Pukerua. From there it is a short walk to Pukerua Bay, or back along the coast to Paekākāriki. Note that there is no entry to these stops when driving south; they are only accessible from the north-bound lane.

If you look up the hill above the car park, you can pick out one of the swing bridges on the Paekakariki Escarpment Track, which is also a section of Te Araroa.
