Additional information:

The town had three lights at least since 1908. The front western harbour light on the pier head worked in conjunction with a rear light some 50 m back. The wooden structurers are unique in its kind and nowhere else to be seen. Light range unknown. A light on a pole marked the eastern pier head at least since 1852. A reconstruction of the harbour entrance including the replicas of the three lights was built in 1990 and last restored in 2016. Today the location is landlocked. The former fishing fleet of Kuinre can be recognized by KU as vessel registration.
