Obrestad Lighthouse is a coastal lighthouse located on the north side of the small farming village of Obrestad in Hå municipality, Rogaland county, Norway. It sits on a promontory about west of Nærbø. The square tower was first lit in 1873 and the tower was rebuilt in its present form in 1950. The lighthouse was automated in 1991 and has been a protected historical building since 2000.
The 16.5m tall square granite tower is attached to the landward end of a 1-1/2 story granite lighthouse keeper's home. The tower is painted white with a red lantern room on the top. The keeper's house, which was built in 1905, is unpainted stone. The light itself sits at an elevation of above sea level. The light emits a continuous white light with an intensity of 129,900 candela with a more intense white flash every 30 seconds. The lighthouse also emits a racon signal: the Morse code letter "O".
The municipal government of Hå purchased the lighthouse station in 2006. There is a museum in the lighthouse and the keeper's house is available for private functions or overnight accommodations. The site is open to visitors daily from mid-June through mid-August and on Sundays from March through June and August through December.

  • When we called the contact number on the website we were told the lighthouse would be open today, but when we got there it was closed! The notice on the door says the lighthouse is close for 2019 for renovation work! Nice place for a walk and great chocolate cake just down the road at Haw Gamle Prestegard.
  • A really nice place!
