“guiding ships to shore since 1875!”
Piedras Blancas Light Station is located on a rugged windswept point of land six miles north of Hearst Castle, along California’s scenic Highway One. First illuminated as an aid to navigation in 1875, the lighthouse still casts a beam of light to guide mariners along the rocky California coast. Today, the lighthouse beckons the visitor, offering a glimpse into history and a respite from the modern world. Access to Piedras Blancas is by guided tours only. Tours are offered year round and feature cultural and natural history, as well as spectacular scenery.
