About this lighthouse:

Point Cabrillo is a wooden octagonal lighthouse tower which was built in 1909 and is 47 feet tall. It has a black cast iron lantern with a third-order Fresnel lens. The focal plane of the light is 84 feet above sea level. In 1973, the lighthouse was automated and the lens was replace by an aerobeacon. Restoration began in 1996 and the third-order lens is now back in use. Located on a beautiful 300 acre preserve that offers many great views of the coast and local wildlife, the lighthouse is open weekends only from March through October. Guided walks are available on Sundays from May through September.
