The light on display inside as well as stories of shipwrecks that caused this to be erected were fascinating.Nice giftshop and plenty fo parking with clean restrooms coupled with the affordable hostel on site makes this a budget travelers choice if travelling the PCH between SF & Big Sur

The area is very beautiful. There is a wonderful hostel on the property. However...we were SHOCKED at how small the lighthouse was. It doesn't take long to visit and get some pictures and enjoy the view and its FREE. Definitely go visit!

Great view point as well as a bit of history. Excellent point for photographs. We weren't able to stay at the hostel but during our visit we were able to talk to staff member who was quite friendly and helpful with recommendations for the area.

montara point lighthouse is a fanastating step back in time. The keepers old house and garden and light house and old building is in a world of its own. And the views of the ocean and coastlne are unforgettable. Always wear layers here, as the weather is changeabe and rememeber you are on the edge of the ocean!
