Replicas of real lighthouses line the shore of Lake Havasu, Arizona. This beautiful scene unfolded one sunset evening in December 2019.
Each of Lake Havasu’s lighthouses is a 1/3 scale replica of a famous American lighthouses, and is not a true lighthouse but instead a navigation light. At present, there are over 20 lighthouses providing navigation to Lake Havasu boaters, with no less than a dozen more planned for the future. In 2002, after the success of the Lake Havasu Lighthouse was demonstrated, the first replica lighthouse, West Quoddy, was erected. Lake Havasu’s largest lighthouse replica, North Carolina’s 209-foot Cape Hatteras, stands at 30 feet tall. Seven of our lighthouses stand on the channel that accommodates London Bridge: Cape Hatteras, Currituck Beach, West Quoddy, Robert H. Manning, Split Rock, and Buffalo Main.
