In 1646, the Livonian governor-general Gabriel Oxenstierna had a primitive lighthouse – a simple beacon built on a little island located at the tip of Sõrve Peninsula. Autumn storms made it clear that the small island chosen for the beacon was unsuitable and the beacon was relocated to the tip of Sõrve Peninsula. A stone tower was established there in 1770, but it was destroyed during the Second World War. The current cone-shaped lighthouse of monolithic concrete was built in 1960.

In the summer, you can also climb to the top of the highest lighthouse on the Baltic Sea.

Interesting Fact:
The height of Sõrve Lighthouse from its base is 52 metres and it stands 53 metres above sea level.
