Swakopmund Lighthouse

Swakopmund Lighthouse is situated in the beautiful coastal town of Swakopmund in Namibia near the waterfront overlooking the main beach. Beneath the tower is the Lighthouse Cafe where visitors can enjoy a snack or two. No entry into the tower was allowed in November 2003 (any updates on this?) It is operational. I photographed it on 28 November 2003. It's thus not a problem getting to the lighthouse - the problem lies more with getting to Swakopmund in Namibia if you don't live there!

Year of installation of this lighthouse was 1903 (though unconfirmed)
Height: 28 metre masonry tower (NPA)
