The Germans demolished the 1928 lighthouse during World War II and replaced it with a concrete blockhouse; after the war a light was placed on a mast atop the blockhouse. In 1999, the blockhouse was removed and the present tower, a fiberglass copy of the 1928 lighthouse, was installed. Located on the southwest jetty at the entrance to the old harbor of Boulogne. Accessible by walking the jetty. ARLHS # FRA-089 (A 1180)
