The first lighthouse in Iceland was built on Valahnúkur in 1879 but by 1905 it had become too damaged and at risk of falling into the sea due to earthquakes and surf. So in 1907-1908 a new lighthouse was built on Bæjarfell hill and the old one was demolished. The lighthouse stands at 26 meters (85 ft.) high and the light signal is at 69 meters (226 ft) above sea-level.
