Description & Services

Built on a rock ledge of Cockawit Passage, the wooden lighthouse was built in 1900.  
It was replaced in 1965 and then destaffed in 1993. 
The present light, a white square tower with a land, is 6.3 meters tall and shows a flash of one second followed by an eclipse of five seconds.  
The lighthouse is easily visible from shore as it stands 800 meters from the wharf.
