    Introduction
    Established on June 8, 1963, Mukho Lighthouse serves as a guarding beacon of ships coming and going at Mukho port. Mukho Lighthouse is a 12m-tall white circular concrete structure with two floors located at an altitude of 67m. It is surrounded by a cozy park where forsythias blossom in spring and visitors can overlook the sea. The park is home to the Maritime Fishing Exhibition Hall, where visitors can learn about the history of fishing in the area. The lighthouse and its surrounding area are full of quiet and comfortable spots to relax and enjoy the scenery.

    Because of its location, the lighthouse is absolutely crucial to the safety of ships and boats coming into the port. The lighthouse’s large light, installed in October 2003, was developed by Korean scientists and uses a rotating prism lens that can shine beams of light as far as 42km.
