The Mouille Point Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse in South Africa, situated in Mouille Point on the Atlantic Seaboard of Cape Town. Built by German builder Herman Schutte in 1924, this distinct red and white striped building was electrified in 1829.

The original oil powered light was first lit in 1824, but has since been replaced with a more modern light source that can be seen up to 23km off the shores of Cape Town. The lighthouse is the oldest operational lighthouse of its kind in South Africa, and has been declared a national monument.
