  • Visual beautiful. Worth a stop and take some pictures. The Lighthouse is historic and has a beautiful Hostel next door.

  • The view from the area is gorgeous. It was neat to see the sea lions playing in the water and the birds perching on the steep cliffs. The guide at the lighthouse was very informative. There is a hostel located there as well.
  • The lighthouse building was closed for visitors. Nonetheless the surrounding offers a great view of the Pacific coast. One can stop by and take time to admire the beauty of blue waters, colorful flowers and green surroundings.
  • We visited this place casually, it's a great place for photos! The lighthouse is sadly fenced off, but you can walk around it. Take some time to walk down to the beach, can be possible see some sea lions. The bathrooms are in pretty rough shape so I would recommend avoiding them if at all possible.
  • Its not as great anymore since the lighthouse is no longer visitable. They might have to tear it down soon, so go and see it ASAP. the sunsets here are worth it, and if you have a chance, stay at the hostel. The hot tub during sunset is what makes this place 5 stars.
  • A little bit out of the way, this is a beautiful old lighthouse that is right on the edge of US 1 looking over the water. A great place to take a few pictures, relax, and take in the view.
