Nothing spectacular but the surrounding area is beautiful. This area where the lighthouse is located is a great place for star gazing after dark.

This stop was very nice. We walked out to the lighthouse and it was so serene, though there was a sign to watch out for rattlesnakes! The bay was gorgeous and certainly worth the beautiful drive.

A relaxing spot by the water where you can watch the water. Or you could walk past the boats in the marine. The water is clear and you can take a nice walk around.
