Built by the Imperial Lighthouse Service in 1863, the Great Stirrup Cay Lighthouse has since warned passing ships of the nearby rocks and shoreline. Some time after its building, during the second world war, the Lighthouse grounds became part of a US military base that included early detection technology. Today, there is not much left save for the lighthouse.

Exhibits

The very white lighthouse is easy to spot against the blue sky and green vegetation. While not particularly tall, the colonial architecture makes Great Stirrup Cay Lighthouse very pretty to look at and take pictures of.
