Cikoneng Lighthouse also known by Tjikoneng, Anyer, Fourth Point or Vierde Punt. Sunda Strait, Banten Province, Java. The original lighthouse was destroyed by tsunami waves triggered by the catastrophic explosion of the Krakatoa volcano on 27 August 1883. These waves were at least 30 m (100 ft) high, obliterating all traces of the original light station.
