Great Fish Point Lighthouse - just outside Fish River Sun

For the safety of shipping on the South African coast, a revolving electric light flashes from this source to mariners once every ten seconds. Built 800 meters from the shoreline and standing 75 metes above sea level, its warning light strength of 5 000 000 Candelas can be detected at a focal plane height of 85 meters above the high water mark as a result of its location elevation.

From PE take the N2 to Grahamstown and take the Port Alfred turn-off onto the R72. From Port Alfred, drive north-east up the R72 for about 30km to the village of Fish River, site of the mouth of the Great Fish River. +- 2 hour journey.

From Kenton, take the R72 towards Port Alfred.  You will go through PA, past Kleinemonde and you will see the sign boards for the lighthouse - turnoff to the right.  

There's a short drive on a dusty road so you may thing you are lost, keep going!
