Point Bonita Lighthouse
Point Bonita Lighthouse in Sausalito
This active lighthouse dates from 1877 and sits on top of a rugged outcropping overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Access to the lighthouse is from the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, down a one mile long road and across a suspension bridge. Access is restricted except for regularly schedule tours.

Open 12:30pm-3:30pm, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and for full moon tours.
NOTE: Point Bonita Bridge Replacement is Underway! Currently the trail and tunnel to the Point Bonita suspension bridge is only open Saturdays and Sundays from 12:30-3:30 pm. The lighthouse is not accessible due to the suspension bridge closure. Construction is scheduled to be completed by Spring of 2012.

Point Bonita today is part of the largest urban national park in the United States, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. A secret jewel of the Bay Area, Point Bonita is still an active lighthouse. The U.S. Coast Guard maintains the lighthouse and the National Park Service provides access to visitors.

Point Bonita Lighthouse is reached by a halfmile trail that is steep in parts. Discover Point Bonita's wild landscape, geology and fascinating history. The tunnel halfway to the lighthouse is open only during visiting hours: Saturdays and Sundays 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
