As i said in gallery - Eastern Cape is not actually eastern -  there is one more lighthouse M8150 - cape Navarin in Chukotka, Russia 179° 09.6´E and few minor lights there of which the easternmost cape Korobitsin M8153 - 62° 49.8´ N 179° 34.3´ E
As for western this is probably be Fuji - Udu Point ? 16° 07.8´ S 179° 57.2´ W
Best regards,
