Long Description:
The lighthouse was designed by Axel Hampus Dahlström and it was first lit in 1872. The tower is brick masonry, and has 110 steps inside with no intermediate floors.

Originally the light was equipped with a Fresnel lens system, and it displayed a white light towards a sector clockwise from south to northeast. There were two lighthouse keepers and a master until 1962 when the lighthouse was automated. The lighthouse also houses a smaller sector light that is used to guide vessels to and from the fishing harbour.

A pilot station was built next to the tower, currently the pilot station serves as a hotel.
