The Beacon was the top floor of the Lighthouse, and served, as the name implies, as a beacon to ships at sea, most notably The Migrator. Due to being so high up, it also served as a great lookout point to see much of the Club Penguin Island. In addition to this, there was a telescope positioned on the railing, which allowed penguins to view far off, to the sea.
While not much was located at the Beacon aside from the giant light, there was also a launch pad for penguins to play Jet Pack Adventure. The entire Beacon was surrounded by railing, with the addition of a set of stairs leading down to the Lighthouse on the left edge.
