The lighthouse is situated in a pine forest on top of a high cliff, not far from the town of Wiselka. This round tower was built from square stone blocks in the second half of the 19th century, with a raised platform made of bricks. The wall’s thickness at the base is 1.1 meters (3 ft. 7.3 in.) and .7 meters ( 2 ft. 3.5 in.) at the top. The lighthouse itself isn’t very high, but thanks to its location on top of a steep cliff with a height of 75 meters (246 ft.) above sea level, it is rated as the highest lighthouse of the Polish coast. The round lantern with vertical sash bars is covered by a cone-shaped roof. In the optical cabin, there is an automat that exchanges light bulbs, six of which are on hand at all times. The whole facility is fully automatic, without constant control, and for this reason, it cannot be made accessible to visitors. The lighthouse was altered in 1962 and once again put into service. The necessity for the construction of this lighthouse is based on the fact that ships sailing the waters of the Pommeranian Bay, heading east from Świnoujście, would not yet be within reach of the Niechorze lighthouse.
