Stopped here to walk along the paths above the Pacific Cliffs. The lighthouse was closed, but were able to visit the Park exhibit station. The docent was very informative on the displays as well as the short movie.

We would have loved to have walked the grounds around the lighthouse, but it is locked up tight with no access. We got some nice pics, but all with chain link fences in them - major bummer. We walked along the cliffs instead, making the...More

The place around the lighthouse is clad behind the fence.You can simply enjoy yourself with a scenery and a walk along the rocky coast.

Nice scenic hike! Great to bring a date or the entire family for a leisure stroll along the beach. Can't wait to go back.

The lighthouse was closed, but the grounds have such wonderful views! We were able to get a few pictures of the lighthouse.

Looks like a great lighthouse to visit, but alas, owned by the federal government and only open every other Saturday for a few hours. Totally fenced off so you cannot even get close. However do visit the Interpretive Center next door.

You can’t get up close to the lighthouse but there are nice views of it from the trail. There is a great walking trail with awesome views of the coast and the ocean. A great walk in the park!

Loved seeing Point Vicente Lighthouse! It is truly beautiful! It's only open the 2nd Saturday of each month so we couldn't go in. But will plan another trip to visit and tour the lighthouse!

I have visited the lighthouse a few times to take pictures. I love this place. Situated on a sea cliff and beautiful views of the ocean and surrounding coast make this a must visit place. It’s especially beautiful at night.

We had a great walk here with our nephew dog and enjoyed seeing 6 whales including babies. Lovely relaxing place.

Not really... There is like a banquet hall or restaurant but I think it is more for events, weddings.
