Lighthouse Field State Beach

W Cliff Dr, Santa Cruz, California 95060 USA

“Outdoors & Recreation in Santa Cruz, CA”

Also known as Point Santa Cruz, this area forms the northern boundary of Monterey Bay. It is one of the last open headlands in any California urban area. Surfers, tourists, birds - including the rare Black Swift and wintering Monarch butterflies are drawn to this area. Sea lions populate the offshore rocks. This is one of the places where Monarch butterflies winter along the California coast. Monarchs are unique because they migrate each winter to avoid freezing weather. The Monarchs wintering here, come from west of the Rocky Mountains. Monarchs east of the Rockies go to central Mexico for the winter.

Those pictures are not of Lighthouse Field State Beach, they are of Seabright Beach which also has a lighthouse (a different one, the lighthouse in the picture is Walton Lighthouse)
