Initially, it was run on oil but in 1986 was supplied with electricity and in 1989 was became automated. The tower is 10 meters tall and has a focal plane of 36 meters. The structure sits on a rocky and inaccessible area and the best way to see the lighthouse is by boat that makes the tour of the island.
