The Cape North (Money Point) Lighthouse in 2004

The Cape North Lighthouse stands on Money Point, about 1 nautical mile southeast of the cape. Cape North itself is a bold, steep-sided, rocky headland, with an elevation of 1,000 feet. Violent local squalls are common off this headland. This lighthouse was replaced by a skeleton tower in 2009.
