Shown here are the old and the new lighthouses on Dzharylhach Island, the largest uninhabited island in the Black Sea area called the Ukrainian Maldives.

Built in 1902, the old lighthouse, threatened by erosion, was replaced by the cylindrical tower built nearby in the late 1990s. The current status of the lighthouses is unknown.
