Stilo lighthouse is one of the most beautiful lighthouse Polish coast. It stands alone among the coastal forest at the dune hill, away from the sea approx. 900m. From this position a beacon is visible from a distance 23,5mil sea. Originally it stood on this spot a wooden beacon, but its scope was much weaker, so that ships often settled on a sandbank. For this reason it was decided to put in this place a lighthouse that stood at the beginning of the 20th century. Its distinctive tricolor tower is now one of the traits of Northern Kashubian.
