Cape Egmont Lighthouse has a small parking area at the coast at the end of Cape Road where self-contained motor caravanners can park overnight
The coastline is pretty rugged, which is the reason for the lighthouse, but it is a peaceful and quiet location with its own beauty.
There are stairs to the base of the lighthouse and the view across farmland to Mt Taranaki is stunning on a clear day.
There is a plaque commemprating the first recorded European sighting of this Cape in 1642, and his map of the area.
