The 26-metre (85 ft) tall cast iron tower sits atop a concrete base. The tower is painted red with two white stripes towards the top. The main light at the top sits at an elevation of 37 metres (121 ft) above sea level which emits two white flashes every 20 seconds. There is also a secondary light located 20.8 metres (68 ft) above sea level that emits a red or green isophase light (depending on direction) that is on for six seconds and then off for six seconds.
