Anping Lighthouse was built as a western-style lighthouse in 1909. It was originally a round white-painted brick structure located in Anping Fort. Sandbars in Anping Harbor and the changing course of the waterway pushed the lighthouse progressively farther from the coast . The functionality of the lighthouse further diminished with the planting of light-obscuring windbreak trees along the coast, leading to the lighthouse's closure in March 1960. In 1965, it was rebuilt as a square tower on the beach outside the harbor, where it continues to play an important function in navigation today.
