  • It's ab awesome light house. Vary unique a beautiful walk to get there. The rangers at the light house are knowledgeable. We were able to see humpback whales from the lighthouse as well
  • Visiting Point Bonita Lighthouse was like discovering a hidden gem in NorCal. I've lived there all my life and never heard of it until recently. The hike is a little tiring. Make sure you wear good shoes and bring a bottle of water. There is a steep hill. Also, use the bathroom before you go to the lighthouse because the publilc restroom nearby is disgusting. The lighthouse itself is small and cute. It's a bit crowded. I loved being near the water and crossing the little bridge. Go early because access to the lighthouse closes early.
  • Didn't get a chance to see the light house but that's ok. Another trip will be made. Iconic views of the bridge and awesome picture scenery.
  • Great place to catch views of the bay area without an entrance fee. There is a light walk to get down to the lighthouse, but the view of the Golden Gate Bridge, if there's no fog, is worth it.
  • Great walk (short hike) to the lighthouse, really nice area. Be sure to check the hours for the tunnel that leads to the lighthouse before you go to make sure it's open.
