The Centre is discussing a plan to turn lighthouses into tourist attractions by developing museums, aquariums as well as walking paths to beaches. It has so far shortlisted 71 lighthouses.

"The museums will depict the history of the lighthouse as well as how the source of illumination changed over the years."
