Description

The beautiful Point Vicente Lighthouse sits on a cliff 197 feet above sea level and its beam can be seen for 20 nautical miles. Making this not only one of the biggest but also one of the brightest lighthouses in the state of California. Spectacular any time of the day or season, sunset brings crashing waves at the base of the cliffs and the haunting sound of the foghorns call over the ocean.
