Pelican Point Lighthouse

Characteristics

Description

Pelican Point is the northern end of a long, low-lying peninsula of barren dune sand that forms the western side of Walvis Bay, protecting the bay from the Atlantic Ocean. In 1915 a small lantern was mounted on a wooden pole to mark the extremity of the peninsula. The present cast-iron tower was erected during 1931/2 and the dioptric revolving lens pedestal was commissioned in 1961. The light has a luminous intensity of 1,300,000 cd and is characterised by a group of three white flashes every 20 seconds.
