This is an interactive map of the world’s lighthouses showing their flashing pattern and colours. I don’t know why, but I find it difficult to pull myself away from it.
Of note on the map is Europe, which plainly loves lighthouses, lighting up its coastlines like a Christmas tree. Norway’s coasts, though, are remarkable – not just for the fjords. Its Antarctic and Atlantic coasts are thick with lighthouses of every colour. Beautiful.
