  • A really small building with a small lighthouse. Building was locked, therefore nothing further for this purpose can be said. It is located at a surf spot influential popular with surfers. Here, you can very nice walk or bike ride. There are several free parking on the other side of the road. Nearby is also "to honor surfing monument" and a memorial to accident surfers.

  • This is more of a drive by and take a look kind of place. Don't build your itinerary around it. It is about the size of a gift shop (and that includes the gift shop that is in there). Cool stuff, but ...  more »

  • My wife and I vacationed to the area in June. We stayed in Santa Cruz one night and wee able to catch the surfers in the evening. This was such a big highlight for our vacation that we came back to kill an hour before we headed to catch our plane back home. Beautiful area with fantastic views.
  • Cool little lighthouse surf museum at the edge of the park. Fun facts bout surfin history. Great view from the beach.
  • Great place to go to if you are in Santa Cruz. Has surfboards from the beginning on the 20th century. Really nice spot, plus it's free.
  • Best part is that it's perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking rocks and sea. Check out the old surfboards signed by Mavericks surfers!
  • Just on the cliff road so great view from up there and the museum had some cool pics of surfers.
