Long Description:
The Green Point lighthouse is prominently located at Mouille Point, but despite this, on 1 July 1966, during a fierce winter storm, a cargo ship, the S. A. Seafarer ran aground between Mouille Point and Three Anchor Bay. Everybody on board was rescued by helicopters of 17 squadron from AFB Ysterplaat. The Mouille Point lighthouse is no longer in existence and was situated at the far end of the suburb, near Granger Bay. When a new lighthouse was erected it could therefore not have the same name and was called the Green Point lighthouse. (visit link)

Beacon Type: Other Structure

Visit Instructions:
We don't require you to provide any specific proof of your visit, but we do request that you upload photos if possible, the more the merrier.

Ideally, you should try to take photos at the actual beacon location, but if that isn't possible (private property, terrain, etc), then photos taken from a distance are also welcome, especially if the beacon is visible in the photo.
