Akassa Lighthouse

Standing approximately 60m tall by the seaside in Akassa, this structure is reputed to be the tallest lighthouse in West Africa. Originally built in 1910, but relocated to its present site in 1912, its purpose was to help ships coming into the inland sea ports navigate their way through shallow waters. The lighting system was facilitated by solar energy. Standing out on the seashore, visitors would be amazed by this architectural edifice, while climbing the lighthouse would be an adventure to remember. Also the long stretch of sandy beach by the lighthouse adds more value to this site in terms of its future development.
