This light is a brown disc and screw pile tower with an octagonal, pyramidal shape. It has a white central tubular stairwell. The former keeper's house, a brown octagonal structure, rests on a platform about 40 feet above the water. The light shines 109 feet above sea level. It is almost a duplicate of Fowey Rocks Light.
