  • You park a little far out and then walk towards the lighthouse. Honestly, the views are breathtaking--the ocean is a lovely blue complimented by the shore/rocks as well as all the plants there. Far of...  more »

  • So, you drive down this little road, park, get out and walk around the property. It's pretty and they have a path out to a little platform so you can get over the ocean a bit. Not too far off the road...  more »

  • This place was so much fun, between the lighthouse, large panaramic view, the council Circle where you can sit and appreciate the view, cement stair - Yes actual stairs to walk down to the beach! Then you can walk to the right and see a whole other part of the beach. A souvenir shop and hostel place to stay as well. We spent an hour there. 😀 Loving California! 😆
  • Great place to visit. Very scenic, especially a sunset can be literally breathtaking. The only downside is, there is hardly any developmental efforts. Very very limited sitting area (3 benches maybe). Limited parking too.
  • This lighthouse and the Point Arena one are the tallest on the west coast. 115 feet. Classic look of the east coast lights. Coastal view is great. Lighthouse needs repair/resestoratiob. The store and museum are good. Staff was friendly. Don't miss it.
  • If you go on Pacific Hwy 1, you'll not miss this lighthouse, it's tall. Nice scenic view from the light station. You can see harbor seals swimming and playing near the rocks. You can spot whales too, wait patiently for it to spray water through its snout. Carry your binoculars, if you want to enjoy seeing these magnificent creatures.
  • The lighthouse is in a beautiful area that points out into the water. There's a couple trails that lead away from the main area around the lighthouse, one of which as an excellent view south along the coast and back up to the lighthouse itself. There's a park store with information and nicknacks, a small restroom, and two parking lots-- one formal and one informal.
