  • The Need for Speed.. I believe that the movie ended at this lighthouse. It is one of the few beautiful coastal lighthouses still in existence, but it has become 'commercialized' with rental housing, gift shop, and what passes as a museum of sorts. Good for 10-minutes to an hour's stop as one travels the California coast along CA-1.
  • Magical place! Beautiful grounds, nice lodging units and the restored Lighthouse tower is just amazing!
  • Coming from Michigan, we see a lot of lighthouses. This was beautiful and well maintained. The history is right there for you to read and touch.
  • Awesome! Very friendly staff, and very accommodating! Definitely, return again!
  • This place never ceases to amaze me! Visited this lighthouse many times and every time it's a great experience!
