Towering 16 meters (55 feet) above the ground, Chrome Island Lighthouse then only had a white shelter at the base, atop which was a red lantern. The fixed light that flashed from the lantern could cover an area of more than 24 kilometers (15 miles) when the sea was calm. Over the years that followed, the tower was refurbished from time to time, a new light was fixed inside the lantern and the dwelling area was replaced by a fiberglass structure. This lighthouse and its keepers have come to the rescue of many distressed travelers and its remarkable history makes it a must-visit when in the region.
