Lighthouse of the Week, March 26-April 1, 2017: Sääretüka Tuletorn, Estonia

Back to Estonia this week, this time with a square lighthouse called the Sääretüka Tuletorn, which is on a narrow spit of land projecting southward from the island of Saaremaa, which is the largest island of Estonia, located west of the mainland.

From the Lighthouse Directory:
"1954. Active; focal plane 19 m (62 ft); three white flashes every 15 s. 18 m (59 ft) Virtsu-type square concrete tower with gallery but no lantern, mounted on a square concrete block base. Entire lighthouse painted white."
