This is a delightful lighthouse which I visit each and every time I go to Crescent City, CA. The lighthouse is on the National Register of Historic Places and is so much fun to take photos of. The view is extraordinary even if there is fog. Lovely place!

It is a small lighthouse , actually a private home, so people are not allowed to enter the house itself. Surrounded by a beautiful rocky beach, the

I love history and lighthouses, and this little place has both. Not always accessible, you can only cross over and get next to the lighthouse during low tide. They do offer tours for a small donation, however, the inside of the lighthouse was closed during our visit. The grounds and surrounding views are stunning enough. Take time to explore the... More

The quaint little lighthouse is beautiful at sunset. The lighthouse, out on the point, stands in silhouette against the brilliant sky.

We stumbled upon this! Beautiful scenery, the ocean...fog, all fabulous. The lighthouse opened as we were leaving and we were welcomed in but the person staying there this month. It's only accessible during low tide so plan accordingly.

I was very happy to hear there was a lighthouse in Crescent City, as they are so beautiful in their own way. However, high tide was coming in when we visited and were unable to walk directly to the lighthouse - the path goes under water.....but still beautiful!

This light is only accessible at low tide. It is continuously staffed by a different couple in residence each month. We did have to wait a bit to get in as they can only take 8 people at a time. They have the tour organized so that one group gets in as the previous group moves to the next room... More

You can walk across the tide pools at low tide to get to the light house. Check the local tide chart for times. Tours are available until 4 PM.

We have been here several times. It is always fun to tour the lighthouse. There are only a few tours each day. The high tide blocks access to the lighthouse. The tours are limited to 8 people at a time. It is a tight squeeze to the very top. One has to be quite nimble. The price is reasonable, and... More

You can only get there during low tide. Tour is interesting and informative. Docents are fun, friendly and welcoming.
