“guiding ships to shore since 1875!”

Piedras Blancas Light Station is located on a rugged windswept point of land six miles north of Hearst Castle, along California’s scenic Highway One. First illuminated as an aid to navigation in 1875, the lighthouse still casts a beam of light to guide mariners along the rocky California coast. Today, the lighthouse beckons the visitor, offering a glimpse into history and a respite from the modern world. Access to Piedras Blancas is by guided tours only. Tours are offered year round and feature cultural and natural history, as well as spectacular scenery.

About 10 minutes from Ragged Point is the Piedras Blancas Light Station, a beautiful 19th century lighthouse that's open for tours year-round. Wonderful place for photos.

If you are at the Ragged Point, then spend 15 minutes of your time and gas in order to visit Piedras Blancas Light Station.

Take the tour provided and enjoy the coastal views and serenity of the place.
The tour lasts about two hours and is guided by very friendly staff. You will get to see the Light Station's exteriors and interiors. This lighthouse is kept in a very good condition and there are visitors coming and going all the time.

Take some pictures of the great sea views while the seagulls are flying above you. You can even see groups of whales dancing at the water further away.
