Pašreizējā torņa būve pabeigta 1921. gadā. Būvmateriāli tika pievesti pa jūru no Liepājas, pie Akmensraga pārkrauti sekli peldošos pontonos, ar kuriem tie nogādāti uz jūrā izbūvētiem steķiem. Bākai ir 38 m augsts ķieģeļu tornis (kopā ar laternu, laternas diametrs 2,5 m), zviedru AGA firmas aparāts - acetilēna kvēlgaisma ar 3 rotējošām starmetēju lēcām - uzstādīts 1922, uguns augstums 37,5 m virs jūras līmeņa.
