Great place to explore and very secluded. We parked just off the light house road and explored for hours all along the northern point of the island. The surf was rough and made for great pictures. We did not see another soul the entire time. It was great. Fantastic place to catch the sunset!

We parked our rental at on of the many pull-offs and walked through the sand down to the sea shore. Good, closed footwear is advisable as it is hard to gain traction in some areas of sand and in other areas where there is a lot of rock. You can get some nice pictures across wide expanses of sand with either the surf or the lighthouse in the background. No matter what time of day it is beautiful. We were there twice; at sunrise and midday. Once you reach the shore the waves rolling in are quite majestic. It is unfortunate that there is evidence of man here, though not as bad as other places I’ve been, but the amount of plastic that washes ashore is disheartening, I wish that I had brought something to pick up some of it.

We drove to the California Lighthouse with all the cruise buses and turned off to the California Dunes for a short walk. We went down to the waters edge and was surprised how violent the surf is.

A good photo opportunity of this small Chapel. The views are great for Photos. The chapel is still in use by the local community.

We didn't have a 4x4, so we just pulled over with our rental car to walk the dunes. We first visited the California Lighthouse and then pulled over on the side of the road at the bottom of the hill near the dunes. We walked and took some great pictures. The sand felt great and our boys enjoyed the feeling of being on a new adventure!

On your travels on the windward side after leaving the California Lighthouse this is a good place to stop and enjot the view. The wild of the ocean hitting the shore is awesome.

Located at the bas of the California Lighthouse by the sea. If you visit the lighthouse you will pass by them. There are restrictions, so know before you go. For me, it was just a sight to see.
