The first light at this site was constructed atop the keeper’s dwelling in 1869. The current concrete and stone 16 m (53 ft) high tower replaced it in 1906. Electricity was installed in 1939. It sits on top of the highest rock of the island making it the second highest lighthouse in the Baltic Sea.
