This was one of the many Lighthouses we visited on the west coast drive. I would recommend reading a little on each one as you see these. It is well worth the time.

Easy to access lighthouse with nice views and walking beach near tidepools. Worth the very short hike up for the views and to see the lighthouse.

This is a beautiful lighthouse - you can hike all the way to the lighthouse during low tide and you can even climb up to the inside light and look out to all sides of the ocean. Very interesting and worthwhile.

The best way to get to Battery Point Lighthouse is during low tide. If you were looking to go to tour the Lighthouse, it would be during the summer time. You could call and ask the Museum on H street. To get more information.
