Cape Anguille Lighthouse[edit]

A new lighthouse was established on the cape in 1960, replacing a predecessor from 1908. It is octagonal pyramidal in shape and built in concrete. The light is emitted at a focal plane of 35 metres (115 ft) above sea level, showing a characteristic of one white flash every five seconds. A signal blast fog signal may be sounded.
