Cape Agulhas Lighthouse

About Cape Agulhas Lighthouse

This Lighthouse is the second-oldest still operating and was built in 1848. The treacherous seas and dangerous coastline claimed many vessels which were reason enough for erecting it. The focal plane of the light is 31 metres (102 ft.) above high water and the range is 30 nautical miles (56 km; 35 mi). It rotates, giving off one white flash every five seconds.
