  • Make sure you wear a jacket and hoodie or strapped hat...very windy going down the hill and over the bridge to the lighthouse. Only open on weekends for 3 hours. They need more volunteers to work here...  more »

  • It is a wonderful experience to drive/bike from Golden Gate vista point to Point Bonita Lighthouse. It got very manageable trails and excellent view of the Pacific Ocean. A lot of options for the entire family, even with small kids if you are driving. Highly recommended.
  • It is called a secret jewel of the Bay Area. You can get a spectacular 360 view of the pacific, the Bay, Golden Gate Bridge, Battery Park, Baker Beach and on a clear day, the Farallon islands. Perfect place to spend weekend away from the city.
  • One of my favorites places in the area. Such a lovely lighthouse. The walk towards the lighthouse is really beautiful. You can get really good views of the city. The guides in the lighthouse are really kind and will gladly tell you every single story about the lighthouse and the maritime history in the bay area. It only opens a few hours in the weekends so you'd better plan your visit before you go in case it is closed.
  • It's so beautiful! Great for photos! Alittle steep hill to go to and return from so wear good shoes!
  • One of the best view points north of Golden Gate Bridge. What makes this place attractive is that currently it opens only three days a week, and three hours when it opens. Couple of impressive views you just can't miss: the white bridge structure that reaches the lighthouse, the resting seals hundreds feet below, the entry into the San Francisco bay and Golden Gate Bridge from a rarely seen perspective. Be sure to come early as the parking is competitive.
