The rear beacon of the Suurupi leading lights is situated 1 km from the shore on a high limestone clint on the Suurupi peninsula. The distance between the leading lights is 2,245 km.

The first lighthouse was erected on the site in 1760. The beacon was reconstructed and equipped with a catopric device in 1812. Many of the outbuildings were built during the 19th century and the lighthouse was repaired a number of times. The ensemble was severely damaged during World War II, but was reconstructed in 1951.

A new lantern room and light device were installed in 1998. Suurupi rear lighthouse is among the oldest beacons in Estonia with many surviving outbuildings. The lighthouse ensemble listed as an architectural monument.
