Menara Suar Gapeu lighthouse (N Breueh)

Characteristics

Description

Stone tower with lantern and gallery, painted red with one very broad white horizontal band.
This light marks the extreme northwestern corner of Indonesia.

Breueh island was devastated by the tsunami of 26 December 2004, but this lighthouse was far above the waves. Some of its support buildings were destroyed, however.

In the far north, east of Meulingge the unique historical remnant; the 132 year old light house "Willem's-Toren", still in operation. Willem's Toren is worth a visit. Besides the tall classical tower, there are buildings from three different times. The oldest buildings are intertwined by roots and trees. Two generators form the 1940ies are still producing the needed electricity. The light house staff can help out with information, show you around and to cook some noodles and coffee, but bring the food stuff and give some money in a handshake for their help.
