The description does not lie. It's a photographer's dream. there literally was like 5 people on the beach near sunset with cameras on tripods dressed like they just stepped out of national geographic. I would be lying if I didn't want to ask them all if they were indeed from NG. The road was weird to find since there is no service but it literally is on a sneaky one car road with a very sharp turn right after the official Pfieffer park sign. Once you carefully make your way down it is 5 dollars so make sure you have those dolla dolla bills yo, on you. The beach at sunset was another world and one of the most beautiful and peaceful places I've ever been. The sun portal did not disappoint but in fact it's sister portal in the rock to the left of it you can climb back into it some what which was fun, I dare say. All in all, a little searching and five dollars well spent.
I had told my traveling companion that we were looking for a very movie star status bridge, the type of bridges that people drove their Lexus over for a car commercial with Morgan Freeman narrating the sunset scene. This bridge is that bridge. For a free photo opp. I enjoyed it a lot and so did the 10 other cars parked on the wee little space of earth off the windy high way road to take a shot. The sun was setting, Morgan Freeman, scratch that, Jeremy Irons was telling me the history of it being built in 1932 in my head and the scene was set. My not so Lexus car felt very luxury like driving cross that bad boy.
Lordy! Twas my first time at a light house (nuts I know for living so close to the coast) but I was very excited and this is such a sweet location for a little drop off highway 1. Breath taking views of the ocean and seals that seem to chill near the light house. It's in the process of potentially being restored so you couldn't go in it, but the outside was still very satisfying. Bonus! It's also a hostel, which I thought was so clever. Adorable little houses right next to the light house!
