I was looking forward to this part of my trip and was not disappointed. The lighthouse and scenery from it were wonderful. We did not see any whales but that was because of the time of the year. Yes, there are stairs but it is so beautiful as you take them that you really can go at a leisure pace... More

We were on our way from Santa Rosa to Half Moon Bay when we went to Point Reyes. The park is huge and you really do need at least a full day. We were fortunate to see the seals at low tide on our way out but wished we had more time to explore.

Take the drive out to the beach. Easier to see the lay of the land rather than driving down RTe 1 on the cliffs.

Wow, the beauty of being at the light house or the beaches could not be a better spot to savor the beauty of this earth. Every sense is delighted by just being here and makes for a breathtaking view.

One of my favorite places in the world. Very inspirational. Absolutely worth the extra drive. I keep going back every time I am in the Bay area. Pack up some light sandwiches, take the windbreaker and enjoy one of the most picturesque coastlines. Great walks all around the area. Love going to the lighthouse, even in the rain and fog--gets...

It appears to be close from SF, but be prepared to drive without GPS indications.... There are 70 miles that will take you more than 4hs drive... But you will LOVE at the end... ENJOY the whole way...!

This is a really large " park" so plan well. We enjoyed hiking to lighthouse, but the fog made views limited. We also found the Earthquake Trail pretty cool.

The gorgeous views of the ocean and coastline are worth the winding drive out to the Lighthouse. Due to limited time, we did not walk down the stairs to the actual lighthouse but we did venture to the point above and enjoyed the view! Be warned it is very windy!

Wow!! This national seashore is take-your-breath-away amazing! My brother is from San Francisco and he knew all the interesting and sometimes out of the way places to take us, and this was no exception. It was just incredible. Not only do you feel like you're in a different country, but you feel like you are on the edge of the... More
