This is the longer section of the walkway and can be done in either direction. It tends to be flatter and passes through more open pasture alongside the coast.
The starting point can be found cross the small tidal stream opposite the last concrete BBQ bench on the lawn of Waipu Cove. If the tide is in, wet feet may be the start of your journey here. You can exit at Waterman Drive and walk the 1.5km along Cove Road, or walk all the way to Ding Bay.
In places it crosses private land with riparian rights so please stay on the path.
