“Favorite every time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

This cove is both beautiful and sheltered from the strong winds. Tidepools, caves, picnic tables, crashing waves, and the beautiful lighthouse (currently under renovation) is a half-mile walk up a beautiful trail. A great place to take kids and photographs. The beautiful old bridge is visible from the trail too. I love it there.

“Most photographed lighthouse in the U.S.!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

This is a beautiful spot on ANY day, and well worth the stop to take a photo op and enjoy the surroundings. A bonus will be that the sea lions decided to sun on the beach down below, but if not, you can catch sight of them frolicking in the ocean below you.

We didn't hike the trail to actual lighthouse. However, we enjoyed the view from the sheltered beach.
