Where you’ll be

Point Arena, California, United States

Besides the Pacific Ocean, the Light Station is surrounded by the recent addition to the Greater Farallones and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuaries, the Point Arena-Stornetta Unit of the California Coastal National Monument. The only land-based part of the National Marine Sanctuaries, this 1,665 acre jewel was listed by the New York Times as one of the top 3 of the 52 Places to Go in 2014. Surrounding our Lighthouse and stretching all the way to the town of Point Arena, this wild and beautiful open space includes access to 12 coastal miles of undeveloped federal and state-managed public lands, coastal bluffs, the estuary of the Garcia River, sandy beaches and dunes, and adjacent small islands accessible during low tide. And it is free to visit! Don’t miss this unique and spectacular “neighbor” while you are here.

The city of Point Arena is just 4.5 miles away and boasts several stores, restaurants and cafes. Point Arena is home to the Coast Highway Artist Collective which offers a gallery of local artists' work, the B. Bryan Preserve with zebras, giraffes and more, and a working harbor. A short 25 minute drive south will bring you to Gualala which is home to several art galleries, shops and restaurants, two supermarkets, two gas stations and the amazing Gualala Arts Center.

Heading north for 6 miles gets you to Manchester, with a market and hardware store and several coastal access routes to Manchester State Beach. Ranging farther north will take you to Elk, Little River, Mendocino and Fort Bragg.
