DEAL LIGHT - Port Elizabeth

DEAL LIGHT – Port Elizabeth

A 23 metre lattice, aluminium tower, built on a site near the Pappenkuils River and named after a small party of British settlers from Deal in Kent, which landed in Algoa Bay in 1820.
This lighthouse replaces the Hill lighthouse which became increasingly hard to distinguish with the expansion of Port Elizabeth and the subsequent maze of city lights.
