Located on a rocky promontory along California’s Central Coast, Pigeon Point Light Station State Historic Park is an important historic landmark and recreational destination. Best known for the Nationally Registered, 115-foot historic lighthouse, the park serves approximately 150,000 visitors annually.
The site offers breathtaking coastal views with opportunities to whale watch and observe marine creatures and habitats. The park includes a limited trail network along the bluff and informal beach access points. The on-site hostel, operating within the former Lighthouse Keepers’ Dwellings, offers low-cost accommodations. The lighthouse is currently operational but temporarily closed to the public due to structural concerns.
