Point San Luis Lighthouse

Point San Luis Lighthouse

What may be the second most important historical momunent to the central coast is strangely barely known by the public. The Point San Luis Light Station, near Avila Beach, is on the National Registry of Historic Places. The Lighthouse is currently accessible through a docent led 3.5 mile round-trip hike on the Pecho Coast Trail.

We hope you enjoy our work.
