Stop by California Lighthouse for a slice of local history and arguably the finest views in this island nation. Named after an ill-fated ship that wrecked here in 1891, the stone lighthouse looks over the coastline and treats visitors to unobstructed views of sandy beaches and nearby golf courses. The surrounding area offers opportunities for dune surfing, while a nearby restaurant ensures no one goes hungry or thirsty. If you time your visit with early evening, you'll see a giant orange sun gently dropping into the sea. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to California Lighthouse by using our Noord trip planner.
California Lighthouse reviews
If you've got a car and some time to spare, it's definitely worth a drive up here. It's got the best views in the island, especially when you go into the lighthouse. I wouldn't say it's a must see though.
Pretty views. Nice stop on our tour. Only down side..they charge $1 to use the bathroom. I understand it is only a buck but I just dont think you should have to pay to use the restroom in a tourist spot.
