The biggest lighthouse in Vanuatu has been opened at Pango Point, at the entrance to Port Vila Harbour.

The Minister for Public Utilities and Ports, Esmon Sae, opened the lighthouse on Thursday and thanked the landowner for allowing his land to be used.

The beam from the lighthouse can be seen from close to 40 kilometres away.

The last lighthouse was destroyed in a cyclone.
