CAPE INFANTA - Eastern Cape

CAPE INFANTA – Eastern Cape

Situated within the San Sebastian private nature reserve south of the Breede River mouth, and only accessible by prior arrangement. The gravel road leading to the lighthouse traverses through miles of Protea shrubs of numerous different species which is a pleasing sight. The lighthouse consists of a 15 metre aluminium tower and the light has a range of 24 nautical miles. This lighthouse was established in 1979 as the result of a collision between two large tankers the Venpet and the Venoil off the Eastern Cape coast.
