skoonheid jy sal nooit vergeet nie

The Cape Morgan Lighthouse is one of only 4 lighthouses along the West Coast. It is also the most easterly lighthouse on the Cape Coast and only 3 km’s west of the Great Kei River mouth easily accessible along a gravel road.

There is a path that leads down from the lighthouse to some great fishing spots before carrying on to Morgan Bay. This lighthouse lies within a beautiful coastal forest and it peeks up above the stunning indigenous forest line that runs along the beach.

Cape Morgan was constructed in 1964 as a fully automated lighthouse. The stone chance lantern sits atop a 12-meter high lattice tower which is always beautiful to see. To reach the lighthouse, take a scenic walk along the beach, travel up a path along the hill to the old mine’s seawater pump station and then a little further you will see this noteworthy structure.
