Beautiful views. Historical site. Hard to figure out how to access past the fences. There is a park next door, that has long coastal walking trails, and lots of picnic areas. You can relax in the sun or in the shade under a tree. This...More

This was a small and interesting museum to visit. We had thought we could see the light house, but it only has certain days in the month when it is accessible. Plan for a 15-20 minute visit to get through the museum.

The light house is gorgeous. We couldn't figure out if there was a way to go inside, but it was fun to hike over to it and see it close up. It's gorgeous and evocative from a distance.

We usually take the trail leading to the Point Vicente Lighthouse. It open to the public for the third (not sure) Saturday each month.

L.A. 南灣半曰遊建議從110HWY 南下到San Pedro Ports O'call 吃午餐, Battleship Iowa 就在附近,可先去逛逛,再去Angle Gate Park 看韓國鍾,再沿至P.V. dr. 到Point Vicente Lighthouse, 可顺便在Wayfarers Chapel停一停看看南加有名的結婚地点.Point Vicente Lighthouse, 的海景更是勝過前几点如能在此看日落,看完再去Rendo Beach 吃晚餐

No, it's pretty easy. It's also wheelchair accessible.
When is the lighthouse open for a free Saturday morning tour? I thought it was the second saturday of each month.
