  • The most memorable stop of our drive up the California coast. Lighthouse was very cool to see and lots of information about lighthouses the operation of them. We stayed over night at the lodging and I think we were the only people there. It was quiet, quant and very romantic. The room was small but sufficient and slept with the window cracked hearing the waves all night. AMAZING!
  • Tallest lighthouse that you can walk/climb up to. What an experience being at the top with 360 views of the area. Do yourself a favor and pay the extra few dollars and go to the top. It is worth it.
  • Wonderful place with friendly staff. Kind of pricy to purchase souvenirs, but the tour is cheap.
  • Closest point to Hawaii! This place is so beautiful. And quiet, well all you can hear is the ocean ♡
  • I lived in Pt. Arena back in the 80's when it first was slowing down.. Slowly becoming almost a ghost town. The lighthouse & the road that leads to it ,is utterly breathtaking!! I have always been fascinated by the Mendocino coast,! It's beauty, serenity & brilliant colors...are what make The "Shoreline Highway a special place has to offer other's to explore, & do! Like Go to the top of the light house to experience it's "forever" View!
