Find out when the tides are out and go!

This is a great place to walk around, to look at tide pools, and to get up and close to nature. The day we visited, the lighthouse was open to visitors for a $3 fee, but if you... read more

This is a great place to walk around, to look at tide pools, and to get up and close to nature. The day we visited, the lighthouse was open to visitors for a $3 fee, but if you didn't want to go inside the lighthouse, you could walk to it (as long as the tide was out) and walk around... More

The lighthouse guides are very informative. There is a small donation to support the lighthouse. This was our first lighthouse visit and we enjoyed it. Unique about this lighthouse is that it is located on a patch of land that is a peninsula at low tide and an island at high tide. So the visiting hours are determined by the... More

Luckily we knew about beating the tide so we stopped here first and were able to visit the lighthouse. Wonderful photo ops. The real highlight was looking for little crabs and other critters in the tidepools afterwards. So much fun and very interesting, our kids thought it was one of the best stops of our roadtrip!

The tour is $3 for adults and well worth it. Narrow stairs and a ladder to get to the very top, so my 80-year-old Mom wisely didn't go to the top lookout, but she enjoyed the rest of the tour. Tide pools at the crossing to the lighthouse have plenty of starfish. Need a jacket and sturdy shoes. Quite scenic.

It was not open for tours at the time we went, but we were able to walk up (tide was low) and look around. Gorgeous!!! Would do it again for sure, hopefully to take a tour if possible!

Great view for pictures, one of the few lighthouses you can get very close to in California, have to make sure you are there when the tide is out.

You can not drive up to the lighthouse but have the option of walking the road in or wandering through different trails. Once you get there the views are amazing. Take the time to wander around and enjoy the scenic beauty.

This is a fun place to visit and has a great history as well. You can ONLY walk to it during low tide, otherwise water separates you from the island upon which it stands. The volunteers were friendly enough, but be prepared for a butt-chewing if you happen to take even a single picture from inside the house itself. The... More

This lighthouse is easy to get to and very sweet. You have to wait until low tide to get to it and be off before high tide as it get surrounded by ocean. There is a buoy fence that is adorable and great for taking pictures in front of. You can go up the lighthouse which is relative short so... More

We found the idea of a lighthouse that can only be reached at low tide to be intriguing. It was quaint and the tour was well worth the suggested $3 donation, but you should know there are steep stairs and a ladder, and the top of the lighthouse can be very claustrophobic of you have 5 or more in your...
