Went there a few times when visiting Britanniabay on our bicycles with a light breakfast packed. Nice to just sit and watch the life around the lighthouse.

Please, readers and visitors: this is a beacon NOT a lighthouse. Nevertheless, an iconic site very popular for wedding and memorable photos.

Walk there late afternoon and gawp at the most spectacular sunset you can ever imagine.

Nothing exciting about this lighthouse. Was an effort to find a way to get to it. No parking area nearby...we parked at a distance and walked along the beach to get to it. Has good views of the beach and surrounding area...

We walked around the bay as far as the lighthouse and sat on the observation platform for a rest. There was a whale in the bay and black cormorants in abundance. there is nothing special here. just a nice place to sit for awhile.

This lead light - not a lighthouse in the true sense - used to be a small wooden structure. Then at about 1998, the developer of Shelley Point build this new "lighthouse" to fit into the popular and sought after development. It is situated on the north-eastern point of the peninsula and guide vessels around it to the St Helena Bay area.
