Light House

The Lighthouse is a major feature of SNP with considerable potential for further development as a Park asset (e.g. as part of the visitor centre, look out point, feature of interest). As a historic building that adds considerably to the attraction of SNP, it should be managed and maintained accordingly. Some minor repairs to the Lighthouse and surrounding buildings are required as well as other measures to improve the overall appearance of the site.

Two significant ship-wrecks are present within SNP. The first is of a coastal dhow that struck the outer reef over 20 years ago and the other is of a luxury yacht that sank in the lagoon after years of neglect. Both are features of interest, particularly the luxury yacht, ‘The White Elephant’ since it was once owned by Elizabeth Taylor. Both should therefore be preserved for the benefit of future visitors.
