3Novices:Hong Kong’s Waglan Lighthouse: the light’s on, but nobody’s home

Located 5.4 nautical miles southeast of Stanley, on a forbidding rocky island that is strictly out of bounds to the public, it must be the most romantic and least visited of Hong Kong’s 114 declared historic monuments.
The Waglan Lighthouse marks the southern approa­ch­es to Victoria Harbour. It and its compound were constructed by China’s Imperial Maritime Customs Service and completed in May 1893, when the island it stands on was not yet part of colonial Hong Kong.
