This rock dominates the skyline at Port Taranaki and it is worth going to the top for the view. It overlooks a large chimney and the Sugar Loaf Islands. On a previous visit we had been up Mt Egmont in the morning & decided to have a swim on the other side of Paritutu Rock in the afternoon. One of my children climbed onto the island and looked over an outcrop and came face to face with a seal. I don't know who was the most surprised.
I have seen some lovely sunsets from Port Taranaki with Paritutu standing proudly in the sky so a night visit could be a bonus
