It consists of an octagonal prism brick tower with lantern and gallery, above a two-story building. The lighthouse was repainted recently[when?] and is now white with red vertical stripes, and the keeper's house in red.

The lighthouse has a rotating view that emits white light flashes every 3 seconds. The focal plane is located at 73 meters above sea level. The lighthouse has a range of 25 nautical miles (about 46 km), and is therefore defined as an offshore lighthouse. It is a 28 m (92 ft) octagonal masonry tower on a two-story house.[2]
