There are a lot of lighthouses on the California coast and this one really doesn't stand out in any way. Add it to your list, but don't expect much more.

Have lived in the area my whole life and had never been to the lighthouse. It's an absolutely beautiful scene on the top. Well worth the time. The best part, its free.

Not much to see as we visited on the 2nd Saturday of the month. (Open for tours on the 3rd Saturday only) This lighthouse is different from most I’ve seen. A good little walk down the beach from the nearest parking area. But a paved,...More

This lighthouse is run by the USCG. They do a good job on explaining this little lighthouse that is only open once a month. (Which is the 3rd Saturday of every month.) If you are in the area check it out. You have a nice...More

This lighthouse is fenced off and is within the parameter of a huge customs facility at Point Hueneme. It's only open to the public only on the third Saturday of each month. You can walk up to it by parking at the intersection of 200...More

We went for a walk along the beach trail and found the Point Hueneme Lighthouse. There was a sign posting their hours and that that the tour was free. Well hey who doesn't like free? Our docent was very knowledgeable and shared lots of little...More

We went during normal business hours and the lighthouse was closed. Perhaps it’s closed during June or something needed to be constructed or … In any case, it was closed but we could still see it and it was nice but it doesn’t beat a...More

I have always been fascinated by lighthouses. This was one place I really wanted to check out on our short visit here. We had a lovely walk, enjoyed the immense waves crashing on the rocks, but to our dismay the Lighthouse was closed that day...More

Easy viewing from first floor with Coast Guard giving talk about light house, lens used history. Well planned and interesting. Great exhibits here also. Climbing stairs and then a ladder to the top could be hard and scary for some. Great view from the top...More

Super uncrowded place for an evening stroll. Parallels the Port where bananas and cool cars come into California and the Pacific with views of Anacapa Island. Great place for cat lovers, the jetty is alive with felines-the locals feed them so they are partly tame.
