Long Description:
Skodsbøl Fyrtårn står placeret midt inde på en mark og man kan derfor ikke komme helt tæt på det, men må nøjes med at betragte det på ca. 100 meters afstand.

"Fyret blev oprettet i 1896 af jern. Det er 8 meter højt og har en fokushøjde på 11 meter. Oprindeligt var det udstyret med et linseapparat og en glødenetsbrænder til sprit. I 1921 skifter man fra sprit til acetone gas og i 1976 skifter man til elektriske lanterner. Forfyrets karakter: ISO W 2s.

Bagfyret står 900 meter inde i landet, nær landsbyen Skodsbøl. Det er en hvis gittermast med rød diamant og har karakteren: ISO W 4s."
