What a beautiful area! The lighthouse is incredible with views that are dynamic. Cobble beach is like nothing I have ever seen. Tide pools and seals, with park rangers right there to point out all the neat stuff! Loved it!

Always a great visit all year. This place has a great visitors center. Good place for bird watching. We saw both bald and golden eagles there. Good hiking trails. This is a good family place.

You can park very close to the lighthouse. Tide pools are close and volunteers are very friendly and kind.

The lighthouse gave impressive views of the seals lying on the rocks below. Plan on venturing down the steps to the tidal pools at low tide. A must see

It was windy. The interpretive center was just ok. Bust cobble beach below the light house acts as a wind block and has great tide pools. The views are great. Great spot for pics.

Although the lighthouse was not open for tours we enjoyed seeing the various birds in the adjacent colony rocks and Cobble Beach with the unique basalt rocks that have been rolled smooth by the waves with seals playing in the tide pools.
