Point Arena Light in California

The jigsaw coastline of Point Arena in Mendocino, California, nearly demands a lighthouse to warn ships away from the danger. Luckily, the Point Arena Light has been on the job since 1870. The coastal region—including both land and waters—surrounding the light are designated marine conservation areas. They protect the area’s pristine natural habitat for a variety of native species.

Point Arena Light is a lighthouse in Mendocino County, California, United States, two miles north of Point Arena, California. It is located approximately 130 miles north of San Francisco in the Fort Point Group of lighthouses. The lighthouse features a small museum and giftshop. Guided tours of the light station as well as self-guided tours of the grounds are available daily. There are also six vacation cottages available, ranging from the Keeper’s Room up to Assistant Keeper’s House 4.
