Perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific, the historic Point Montara Lighthouse Hostel is set against the dramatic and breathtaking scenery of the California coast.

Originally established in 1875 as a fog signal station after several ships ran ashore in the late 1860s, this historic lighthouse is still an operating aid-to-navigation maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard. 

In addition, the coastside location of Point Montara Lighthouse offers convenient access to several beaches for swimming, surfing, kayaking, windsurfing, and horseback riding.
