The Cape Egmont Boat Club is in a stunning location with views of Mt Taranaki, its own lighthouse, and spacious on-grass parking for self-contained motor caravanners. A $5 per night donation is requested.
We arranged to meet up with our good friends, Miles and Lynda on a sunny December afternoon. The plan was to do some fishing from the boat ramp, but that didn't prove too successful - unless you get excited about hooking up seaweed!
Instead, we enjoyed having a good look around before taking a drive to have a look at the Cape Egmont Lighthouse.
We had a great day, This is an excellent location for chilling out in a peaceful coastal environment.
If you look inside the club rooms, you'll see what 'real' fishermen have been able to catch - but a little further out in the harbour.
We visited again with some friends, and stayed overnight before continuing on south to check out the Tawhiti Museum. There was a stunning sunset while we had dinner together outside.
We also noticed an innovative boat washing bay, which was being well used by local boaties returning from a days fishing.
