navigational beacon
Explanation:
Hello Ramona,

This is a general term for marine navigational lights; one might also use the term "lighthouses," although this refers to a certain type of structure which is no longer constructed per se.

The term "navigational beacon" includes a variety of lighted aids for marine navigation.
