TripAdvisor Ratings & Reviews
Absolutely stunning view from the top of the hill. The lighthouse is beautiful. I recommend going here. We didn’t go inside.
Staff at the gift shop and museum were so informative!
My husband and I were driving the Hwy 101 costal road. Not all of the light houses had giftshops so after our picture of the beautiful lighthouse we ventured down into the shop. It was large with so much to shop from but the best part was the lady that worked there and her husband. I had to drag my husband out. He would have talked all day to them. It really was a highlight of our trip and I bought a wooden Christmas ornament commemorating the light house's 125th anniversary next December. The museum looked interesting but we only had so much time. I'm just happy we did no miss the gift shop and people!
One of the earliest lighthouse on this coast
This lighthouse is a short way off the main road. You cannot visit the lighthouse, but you can visit the museum which tell the story of the lighthouse and history of people working on the coast in the past - an interesting story. Worth a quick visit.
Nice views, location, information
A short drive off the coast highway just south of Winchester Bay, this lighthouse is up on a hill on the east side of the road. Across the street, a parking area with vantage point of dunes, a breakwater, and the coast down below. Lots of informative signage.
Quietly saving lives
Well maintained lighthouse, regular tours offered by the most kindly, interesting Coast Guard folk, information summarized on poster outside lighthouse, truly amazing gift shop, pristine area, great view if the dunes and the Pacific Ocean.
