Lighthouses for safety

The Maritime Safety Authority of Fiji (MSAF) has completed the construction of lighthouses located in Momi Bay, Nadi and Lami, funded by Government and aimed at increasing ship safety in Fiji waters.

"The new leading lights and day marks will ensure lighthouse structure is clearly visible to ships at all times and safe entry and exit of foreign and local ships in Suva passage and Navula passage, and guide them in their approaches to the ports and other berthing facilities in Suva, Denarau and Lautoka," said MSAF chief executive officer John Tunidau.

The new structures replace the lighthouses that were built in the 1950s during the colonial era which sustained damage during STC Winston in 2016.

The lighthouses are fully funded by the Government and are fitted with state-of-the-art solar LED marine lantern lights.
