Umhlanga Lighthouse 18 June 2016

Umhlanga (Place of Reeds) boasts a beautiful stretch of beach,
 luxury hotels and a lighthouse painted in red and white is its main landmark.
Fully automated now, this concrete tower has a light range of 24 sea miles.

It has never had a lightkeeper residing within the tower or in keeper's quarters;
a warden lives nearby at the Oyster Box Hotel.
