About
Kihnu lighthouse situates on the most southern tip of Pitkana nose. Lighthouse was brought here in 1864 from England dismounted in pieces and was mounted back on the place. It is one of the four cast iron towers that are extant on our shores. Tower is white, conical shaped and equipped with lamp locker and balcony. The height of the light from the sea level is 31 m and from the ground 29 m.Unfortunately it is not possible to climb up the tower, but at the foot of lighthouse it will be comfy for you to lay on the grass and daydream in the sea wind!Interesting to know!Tower was built at the same time as Vormsi and Virtsu lighthouses and is similar to them from outside.

Nice old iron lighthouse, view from above is spectacular since Kihnu is rather flat island. It was made by the Tividale Company from Tipton, Staffordshire, Great Britain and built at the southern tip of the island (Pitkänä penninsula) in 1864. It is 29 meters high from the ground. Inside there are winding stairs which are painted in blue, black and red colors, the inner walls of the lighthouse are blue. Light comes not only from the artificial lightning but also from round ship-style viewports. On the top there is narrow round-the-tower balcony.
