This was a pleasant walk through some pretty meadow. You can hear the seals barking in the distance, but we didn't see them. We arrived too late to go into the museum or lighthouse. They close at 4:00. The succulents on the cliffs are lovely..

Easy but one of our favorites. Recommend going counter-clockwise, out on the northern light station trail (which we took straight to the shore) and returing via the straight road. You can appreciate the view of the lighthouse better while heading out. Of course, wear long pants, as you always should.

Short walk with gorgeous views of the ocean and coastline. The marine museum near the lighthouse is pretty small but worth checking out as well.

The trail is lovely. Paved until you reach the light house. The aquarium / museum is very small but informative and fun. The bulge along the cliff side is lovely but very windy, my water bottle blew out of my hand (fortunately we recovered it). The cliff side trails are fun. The return trail is cut through heavy grasses and runs parallel to the paved road. A fun path. If you enjoy wind you will enjoy this!

Super cute and educational! The locals have done a wonderful job at restoring the lighthouse and surrounding buildings.
