  • Beautiful place. Took kayaks from Avila harbor over to lighthouse. Super beautiful place. Definitely a must when I'm the area, if it's not too windy and if weather is good.
  • Truly amazing history of California. Must take the trolley tour. You can take hikes or kayaks to get 2 the lighthouse by other tour guides.
  • In order too visit this lighthouse, you have to check online when to go and buy the tickets online. It's $20 for an adult but you get a private trolley ride to the lighthouse and a tour of the history of the lighthouse. I loved the tour because it was packed with history and you could walk up to the lighthouse portion or the house. You can also get here by kayaking from Port Avila which is always a great option because you are surrounded by wildlife.
  • A must see on the Central Coast. This historical lighthouse has been loving restored by the local group of volunteers. Along with the light, they add the areas history and events of settlements. Beautiful, breathtaking views of the Pacific and gardens are another draw.
  • Hike, kayak or take the trolley ride. Great family fun.
