“Worth a look for the surrounding coastline”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

The lighthouse itself is nothing special in terms of looks. However, the coastline on the Lighthouse Loop Trail segment of the Wild Pacific Trail leading to and beyond the lighthouse is spectacular. The lighthouse is not accessible.

“beautiful walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

the trails leading to the lighthouse are full of nice views. There are many photo opportunities along the walkway. Too cool to miss.

“Scenic spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Lovely spot to gaze out over the Pacific Ocean. It's hauntingly beautiful when a light fog is rolling in around sunset.

“Point Lighthouse Trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

This is worth waiting until the mist clears, the views are spectacular. A short walk with lots of seating areas around the trail and we saw a grey whale from the trail.

“Nice view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

All in all, a nice view, but the lighthouse is automated so you can't go in it and see anything. The shores around the lighthouse are basically treacherous rocks so not really good for anything else than enjoying the view. But, it's a great view! Takes about 35 minutes to get to the lighthouse on the walking trail
