This is a historic lighthouse to view, but a fence and a sign prevent entry. What is pictured above in Tripadvisor is what can be seen from the road. We enjoyed walking on down toward the left, to the little beach. From there we had...More

The lighthouse was removed years ago! Great views, fishing, trails and beaches but no lighthouse. Part of Fort Flagler state park lots to do but no lighthouse to see.

This was a nice outing - the park is great - lots of trails - and lots of peaceful places. Views from the park are wonderful and it appears they have great rentals for individuals and groups.

Skip this area, there is absolutely nothing to see here except another angle of the sound. Skip this lighthouse, not much to look at except for people fishing on the shore and a few buildings with a light bulb on top of a small pole!...More

This is on the point below Fort Flagler and is reached through the Fort. You can drive to the gate and walk around the outside of the fence but can not go in. The best views are from the east side, out by the water.
