Umhlanga Rocks Lighthouse on the kwaZulu-Natal coast, South Africa

Weekly Photo: Lighthouse – Umhlanga Rocks

Following on the lighthouse theme, here’s a shot of the lighthouse at Umhlanga rocks on the kwaZulu-Natal coast near Durban in South Africa.

Built in 1954, the lighthouse has always been automatic. It protects ships from the dangerous local rocks as well as providing a beacon for the nearby port of Durban.

The photo was taken on a Samsung Note 4 during our 2016 South African holiday. The view is from the Lighthouse Bar in the Oyster Box Hotel.

This is a second post for Bren Ryan’s Photo for the Week – 4 – Lighthouse challenge. Couldn’t resist it as this is one of my favourite beach spots.

    • Thanks Bren. To be honest I didn’t even think of the rocks. As the name Umhlanga Rocks suggests, it is a rocky bit of coastline.
