California Lighthouse | 1915


Address: Hudishibana
Year built: 1915
Open to public: Yes

The construction of the California Lighthouse commenced in 1915, with its name, ‘California,’ being derived from a ship of the West India Company and Pacific Steamship Co. named ‘California,’ which had wrecked in the vicinity in 1891. As a result of this maritime incident, the idea of erecting a lighthouse emerged to guide ships with its light towards the eastern tip of the island.

In 2015, Monuments Fund initiated the restoration of the California Lighthouse. This restoration project reached its completion in September 2016. The lighthouse is now rented to Expediatours and is open for visitors to enjoy the beautiful view from the top.
