Cape St. Lucia Lighthouse


This lighthouse is situated one and a half hours drive from Richards Bay along the Mapelane road. It is 8 meters high and situated on a hill. The only Lighthouse to have a woman assistant Light keeper in the 1940’s. (Mrs Coward) A shipwreck can be seen from the lighthouse(Jolly Rubino) – a cargo ship which went down in 1993. It can be reached in any car but a stretch of sand road makes for slow driving.
