Kihnu lighthouse is situated on the southernmost tip of Pitkänä peninsula. It was brought here in 1864 from England, dismounted, and was reassembled on site. It is one of four cast iron lighthouses that remain standing on our shores. The tower is white, conical in shape and equipped with a lamp locker and balcony. The height of the light from sea level is 31 m and 29 m from the ground. Unfortunately it is not possible to climb the tower, but the foot of the lighthouse is a great place to lie back on the grass and daydream in the sea breeze!

*The lighthouse was built at the same time as those of Vormsi and Virtsu and is externally similar to them
