El Hank Lighthouse, Casablanca, Morocco

This impressive light sits on a point of land on the west side of Casablanca approximately 1.5 km from the Hassan II Mosque and 4 km from the main port. It is also known as the Pointe d'el-Hank lighthouse.  The light, that dates to 1919 (although there was a station at this point as early as 1905), stands 161' tall and remains active. Unfortunately due to time constraints I was only able to photograph the light from a distance and while on the bus. Photos were taken in April 2013.


  1. A beacon of light in Morocco...very pretty.

    1. Yes a very impressive light. Wish I could have gotten up to it, but one can only do so much. Cheers, Neal
