Sandhammaren

Sandhammaren is a Swedish lighthouse, and the name of a cape east of Ystad in Scania. At first two identical lighthouses were constructed, because it was a risk to mistake this lighthouse with the one on Ertholmene. The flame first ran on colza oil. Later on (1891), one of the lighthouses was put out of service and moved to Pite-Rönnskär in Norrland, at the same time the lamp was transformed to a paraffin lamp. The lighthouse was electrified in 1942.

The Swedish Maritime Administration owns and runs the lighthouse.
