  • If you explore the West coast of the United States it is done by route 1, however that is not the best, it is best that you know some interesting things like the lighthouse that in addition to not charge entry offers great views of the Pacific coast and you can also do some photos to remember! I had never been close to one and it was a great experience; as you can see in the photos, it's a great cold.

  • Beautiful and picturesque! The hostel that sits on the site does not help! The actual lighthouse is still closed (for renovation). This one is off the beaten path but worth a look-see. Take jackets -summer or winter it is always cold!
  • Beautiful views of the sea behind the light house. We spotted a few seals from the deck. The fresnel lens display store was informative. The place was totally windy on a summer day, which made it difficult to enjoy a picnic lunch.
  • Beautiful stop with more to explore than meets the eye. There is no access to the lighthouse and it is fenced off with some ugly fencing which is a shame. There is a small shop and some small exhibits. The views are stunning when the fog lifts.
  • Nice for taking landscape photos but not great up close. Has beach access. But terrible restrooms.
  • Must see. Very very interesting. Nice nature. There could be more parking spots.
