Built in 1930, Berlayer Beacon is a prominent light beacon at Tanjung Berlayer. Situated on an outcrop at the southernmost end of Labrador Park, Berlayer Beacon and the neighbouring Tanjung Rimau on Sentosa Island serve as a navigational guide for ships and boats approaching Keppel Harbour.

 

The Berlayer Beacon flashed white light for 0.5 second and eclipsed for the next 4.5 seconds at an elevation of 30 feet. Its visibility was 10 miles and the light was unwatched.

 


In 2005, the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and the National Parks Board (NParks) planned to demolish the beacon and replace it with a replica of the Long Ya Men or Dragon’s Tooth Gate. This proposal was met with opposition from the Singapore Heritage Society and the replica was built meters away from the beacon.
