Cape Recife Beacon

In addition to the lighthouse out at Cape Recife, there is also this "lighthouse looking" tower standing on the rocks.  It doesn't have a light though, but it is still a shipping beacon.  This specific beacon is one of two that had to be lined up in the old days by ships coming from the west before they could turn north and into Algoa Bay.


  1. INteresting. So much to know about in the old days. I suppose its all electronic now. Until some glitch happens...

  2. Good old Cape Recife... fantastic place!
