Beacons are usually set near the sea. They are mostly similar to the form of the tower. Through the lens system of the top of the tower, the light will shine directly toward the sea. In the past, most of the beacons located on danger coast and seaport to guide the ship's direction. However, because the modern navigation equipment on ships has been improved a lot, the beacons have reduced greatly. There are only 1500 beacons still operate in the whole world.
