  • Great history and great views. We saw seals swimming off shore and learned about the lighthouse and restoration project. Nice walking path with tons of information and great photo spots.  more »
  • The drive to the lighthouse along the coast on highway 1 allowed for numerous stops at public beaches. It was casual parking and an easy walk to the lighthouse. There's a viewing platform and there we...  more »

  • Been a favorite tranquil spot of mine since I was a young girl. Have been there so many times and still love it! I love the new stairway down to one side! Makes sunset into night hikes and spelunking and reef walking really doable now with a little rock scrambling!! Lighthouse is always so picturesque! The lighthouse keeper is such a cool dude and always so friendly! A great place for a tranquil retreat!! Feels like you are on the edge of the world and away from it all, just one with nature!
  • I visited here in 1997 and again in 2017. Now that it is one of five official gateways to the California Coast National Monument (2000), there have been many improvements, although the lighthouse itself is fenced off while rehabilitation will take forever. The family really enjoyed the informational displays and we spent more time here than I expected. Next time I will plan ahead and stay at the hostel.
  • The scenery is great. It is easy to get there. The surrounding area has lots of places to go and things to see. The Hostel is wonderful because it is on the cliff with easy access to the beach.
  • Amazing place. Scenic views. Historical room well done with lots of interesting placards plus activities for the kids. Also an adjacent gift shop and viewpoint. We only wish we would have had time to check out the tide pools. We'll be back for sure.
  • Very beautiful n peaceful place. Great photo ops. Would recommend checking the weather before you visit as it can get very windy n foggy. If you are lucky you can spot whales.
