Cape St Francis Lighthouse was commissioned on 4 July 1878. The 28-metre circular masonry tower supports a lantern house and 2nd order revolving lantern consisting of 8 catadioptric lens panels. The lighthouse was declared a National Monument in 1984.
The lighthouse is located within the eastern sector of the Cape floristic region, a floral kingdom internationally recognised for its spectacular diversity. The vegetation supports a diversity of bird, rodent and other small animal population. It is for this reason that efforts are being made to have the area declared a Private Nature Reserve. Guided Tours are offered on weekdays and facilities include a tearoom and curio shop and there is also a marine and wildlife rescue centre.
