Pedra Branca Or Pulau Batu Puteh: Horsburgh Lighthouse And A Mouse

Reference: NLB infopedia


Pedra Branca, with the distinctive Horsburgh Lighthouse, is the piece of real estate at the centre of claims between two good neighbours. I would love to visit it for a look-see, to get a feel of the monsoon winds, and to tour the significant buildings on this miniature island. Practicalities will not allow this wish to be fulfilled. Nevertheless, I can still see the sights of Pedra Branca and its Horsburgh Lighthouse with a few clicks of a mouse.

At 46 kilometres east of Changi Point, it is a long way off were I to take a suicidal bumboat trip there with a compliant boatman. If weather and sea elements do not claim the vessel, the long arm of authority would certainly prevent the trip from completing its journey.

Horsburgh Lighthouse is at Latitude 1,20’15” North and Longitude 104,25’00”. The towering black and white painted lighthouse reportedly has seven levels and stands 109 ft from sea level. There are other buildings on the tiny dot of land that remains out of bounds to uninvited visitors.

See more places. Live more life.
