After posting one of the lighthouses from the northernmost  tip of Taiwan
here's from the southernmost: the Eluan Pi Light.

The sender wrote that this lighthouse is within the Kenting National Park.
The lighthouse was completed in 1883.
During its construction, Chinese troops were sent to protect it
from the attacks of local tribesmen.
It was surrounded by a fort with cannon and ditches.

The lighthouse is 21.4 metres high.
It is 56.4 metres above the tidal waters.
It flashes a white light every 10 seconds.
The light's range is 27.2 nautical miles.
