If you are traveling on Highway 1 this is worth a stop. The lighthouse itself is closed for renovations but the Fresnel light is on display. The views along the coast are amazing. There is no charge for visiting.
What a lesson in history at this lighthouse. She may be a bit worn but still has a big presence. The volunteers were all friendly & willing to answer any questions. There is no charge to visit but donations to the restoration are appreciated. There...More
My wife and I each visited here in sixth grade science camp, so it was fun to return a few years later (!!). The more than century-old lighthouse has an interesting history with an amazing lens on display in an adjoining building (the lighthouse itself...More
The lighthouse is small and the interior is closed to the public, but the lens is on display in a building near by and is quite interesting.There are some good areas for photography and a staffed parks center. Plenty of parking. The nearby loo reeks.
Pigeon Point is a very small historic park, but we loved it so much we decided to spend the night at the adjoining Hostel that use to be coast guard barracks.
The 1870's style American light-house itself is closed as it is deteriorating, but we...More
Lovely views and interesting history at the Pigeon Point lighthouse. Plenty free parking and rest rooms.

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.
