There is a small parking fee but tons of parking in my experience , there's a few interesting points before even reaching the lighthouse awesome views of the city & the harbor.. I truly recommend it & if a sunset it's possible please enjoy it... More

Take the time to enjoy this historic example of early U.S. lighthouse. You can see many light house on the Pacific and AtlNtic coasts, but there are very few that you can enter, climb around in, an have historic explanation of the early lighthouse service in the United States. This is part of the Cabrillo National Monument, there is a... More
