Suurupi lighthouses

The Suurupi rear lighthouse  was completed in 1760. The height of its light was approx. 40 metres from the sea level and 16 metres from the foot of the tower. In 1944, the lighthouse was hit by a shell, but it was restored in 1951; during the restoration, the tower also gained in height.
The Suurupi front lighthouse was built in 1859 and is the oldest and currently the only wooden lighthouse still functioning in Estonia. It acquired its final shape after several alterations in 1888.

In 1998 the lighthouse was restored.
