Lighthouse at Oostpunt is broken

lighthouseWILLEMSTAD - According to a report by the Dutch newspaper Antilliaans Dagblad, the lighthouse at Oostpunt (east point) is broken. The repair is not really expensive, but the government has not yet allocated funds for the maintenance work.

Most ships do not really need a lighthouse because they have their own navigation systems on board.

It is difficult for the local fishermen because they usually sail using the light as their guide. According to the newspaper, the lighthouse will soon be repaired.
