That's the one - Southern tip of Taiwan, allegedly the only fortified lighthouse in the world (the natives are much more friendly now than they were in the 19th Century)

On one voyage to Japan, after a particularly rough trip up the South China Sea dodging 2 Typhoons. (Dead Slow Ahead - Stop Engines for 2 days) We were back up to Full Sea Speed when on the 12 - 4 Watch the Engine-room phone rang "Second Mate here. Can we stop, there's a Lighthouse dead ahead, and there shouldn't be"
When he worked out which lighthouse it was, we were actually over 200 miles ahead of our estimated position - so this lighthouse probably saved my life.
