Sunset on the coast at Pigeon Point Lighthouse
After an ocean tour in the Monterey Bay we made our way up the coast on California’s highway 1 for our stay in Half Moon Bay. Watching the waves crash into the rugged cliffs along the winding coast was spectacular. Arriving at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse at sunset was the frosting on the cake! Perched on a cliff and flanked by rolling meadows the lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in America. At 115 feet tall it has been guiding mariners since it was first lit at sunset on November 15th of 1872. It is without a doubt a must see when exploring the California coast.

The coastal areas surrounding Pigeon Point Lighthouse are rich with life. Marine mammals, such as seals and whales, can be seen regularly from shore as they pass by beyond the surf. All of which we saw on our ocean tour that day. See more our California adventures in Pebble Beach and Big Sur. Are you planning a Trip?
