  • This is a great stop whether for a few minutes or much longer. Scenic with fantastic views. Nice grounds and tiki bar offers great drinks and food. A highlight of the area.

  • Very nice lighthouse and park. Lots of areas to seat and/or just admire the beautiful beach nearby. We were lucky to see whales!!! Also, there was a surfing competition the same day we were there, so it was nice to watch it for a while. There were local vendors on the parking lot selling crafts. I'm not sure if it is always there or just because of the surfing competition. Anyway, nice place to stop by, take pics and enjoy the views!
  • I'm happy to say that the lighthouse is fixed from what it looked like in previous years. Truly a tourist attraction. It is very lovely, makes you want to sit and stay there for a long while.
