3 possibilities:
1) Lighthouse.
2) Off-shore lighted buoy to warn of the closeness of a beach, shoal or reef.
3) Latern that will protect light source from wind.

this lamp is battery powered (BA-200)
has a 2" square light/lens, one on each side
pointing oppist directions,
whith a fold down shade over each lens.
and a pole clamp on the side.
my guess,- to mark beach lanes for the landing craft.
or minefield lanes ect.
anybody know for sure?

Grunt, you are only partially correct. You did not ask about an official Beach Light, just a Beach Light.

Today they are ornamental lights coming in verious colors and styles, some crackle glass, some tubular, some clear glass and some colored glass.

They are used as beach lights or patio lights.

While researching this question, I did indeed find your description of beach lanterns. However, thinking along military definition lines, I limited my inquiry to navigational/naval applications.

well if you dont have one in your collection.
do you want mine?
theres a second little compartment in the battery box,
that i think might have held colored lensesses.
but if so there missing now.
the light works good. but your going to have to by your own battery. scince my signal corps lantern takes the same battery.
