Just 15 miles north of Cambria on a rugged, windswept coastal point rests the historic Piedras Blancas Lighthouse. Named for the large nearby white rocks that sea captains used to guide them to shore, the Piedras Blancas Light Station was first illuminated in 1875 to guide mariners along the rocky California coast. Today, it offers visitors a glimpse into the past.
A variety of tours are offered year-round, including Sunset and Whale Watching Tours as well as guided tours of the restored lighthouse and surrounding buildings.
Take a guided tour of the historic lighthouse and walk away with a deeper understanding of this local gem and its significance.
Piedras Blancas Light Station guided tours are offered September through mid-June on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. From mid-June to the end of August, tours are offered Monday through Saturday.
