The Macuti Light was built in 1904 and is located in Beira. The tower stands 28 meters (92 feet). The Macuti Light was painted with black and white bands for most of its life, all white for a time, then most recently white with red bands.

A terribly windy spot, but a great place for photos and/or afternoon sundowner drinks. A good place for a beach stroll too, but rug up!! It can be cold and wet. Shipwreck photo opportunities depend on low or hide tide

After many years I was able to access the lighthouse and climb to the top. Wonderful view and generally an interesting visit. We managed to book a tour before. Probably, the easiest is to speak to the guard to get the phone number.

We took a tuk-tuk from down-town and got a ride to Macuti then walked on the beach where we can have a great view of the lighthouse. Unfortunatly, a police is there and it turns out that tourists can take pictures of the light house.

Beira itself doesn't have a ton to do and these two attractions won't take up much of your time but I definitely suggest taking a walk on the beach to the shipwreck. Growing up I spent many holidays in Beira and there is a noticeable...More
