The harbour at Leptis Magna is a bay between two headlands, as this map from the web shows (click on the images for full-size).
It is silted up now, and a sandy beach runs between the two:
On the far headland stands the lighthouse, or what now remains of it. It is falling into the sea, and another century will see it gone. The Italians would, of course, have done something about this, but the Libyans never have.
I climbed up the headland, and took this closer photograph, looking north-east, where it seems relatively complete:
I then walked round to the left and took another, which makes the sea’s closeness clearer.
The sea has demolished the left hand wall, as can be seen if you climb up close. The interior is now a shell, with the sea tossing at the bottom.
I don’t think many people will be going to Libya this year, but we should remember how much there is there which is well worth our seeing.
