Saudi Arabia (Jeddah)

The 133-m-tall (436-ft) Jeddah Port Control Tower in Saudi Arabia, although not primarily built to aid navigation, is listed by The National Geospatial Intelligence Agency’s “List of Lights” and surpasses in structural height any other traditional and non-traditional lighthouses in active use. The concrete and steel tower was built in 1990 and has a focal height of 137 m (450 ft); it produces three white flashes every 20 seconds.

The second-tallest lighthouse is reportedly the 119-m-tall (390-ft) Maritim Strandhotel Travemünde in Germany, whose light beacon is at 114 m (374 ft).
