Nice park, cool breeze, mature trees provide plenty of shade, no beach access, walking trails with decent views, some cactus and succulent plant gardens. Good place to bring your folding chairs and read a book or two.

We had spent time in the nearby Interpretive Center, which also houses the original 1800's lens from France that was used for many years at the lighthouse. It was a nice easy and beautiful walk to the lighthouse from the Center. However, disappointing that you cannot see it, except from a distance. The area is quite nice though, with some green park shade area with picnic tables - great spot to eat. Wonderful views. Quite a bit of history with this lighthouse.

We arrived at what we regarded as the perfect time to admire the fine construct and its gorgeous surrounding panoramic land and seascapes. Late afternoon as the evening light began fading. Walking from the Interpretive Centre towards the lighthouse was wonderful. Seeing the ever changing light on the rugged coastline creating varying patterns of hues was inspiring. It was fascinating to learn that its famous 5 foot Fresnel lens, which was hand ground in France, spent its first 40 years in an Alaskan lighthouse before ending up in Point Vincente in 1926.

A very nice location to enjoy LA cliffs, sometimes whales or just have a relaxed walk. A little away from both LA and Orange (about 45 min drive) - but very nice and worth going there. Highly recommended if You have 2-3 available hours.
