About Milnerton Lighthouse

Surrounded by lagoon, palm trees, parked cars and residential homes stands Milnerton Lighthouse. This is the only nautical guard within metres of a golf course, lighting the eighteenth hole of the spectacular Milnerton Golf Course.

This 21m cylindrical tower of white concrete protects seafarers of this suburbs coastline that has caused more shipwrecks than any other section of South Africa coast. Over 150 ships have wrecked themselves on this shores shape over the last few hundred years which resulted in the installation of this lighthouse in 1960. The stranded Nieuw Haarlem is commemorated with a plaque at the lighthouse.

Urban development has reconstructed this coastline between Table Bay Harbour and Cape Colombine burying secrets of wrecked ships below a new mass of land and construction. The lighthouses revolving electric optics cast white light 25 nautical miles out across the Atlantic Ocean swells flashing 9 times in a minute with a candela power of 800 000 CD. This West Coast site of flashing light has a focal plane of 28 metres above high water and the perfect viewpoint of Table Mountain. Appreciate this beacon on the way to visiting Milnerton Beach.
