Was driving up Hwy 1 from Santa Cruz to San Francisco when I saw it in the distance.
Figured it might possibly be a state park or something we might be able to stop at. It is a state park and currently under renovation. Great...More
I'm a lighthouse junky, Ive photographed as many as I can find! This one is especially picturesque because of the open fields, wild flowers, rocks and rolling hills.

Unfortunately, there is no public transportation to Pigeon Point from anywhere. If you are in one of the cities on the peninsula or in South Bay, the best way to get there is probably to HWY 92 to Halfmoon Bay, and then drive south on HWY 1 for another 20 min. Pigeon Point light house is just few miles south of Pescadero State Beach.
Driving is really the best way to see the coastal highway, there will be many beautiful beaches worth stopping between Halfmoon Bay and the light house, seafood restaurants in Halfmoon Bay is awesome, and don't forget to visit Norm's Market in tiny coastal town Pescadero for their famous oven fresh and piping hot garlic artichoke bread.
