New Point Loma Lighthouse

"New" Point Loma Lighthouse

  • A new lighthouse was built in 1891, and is still in use today.

  • It was built closer to the water so that fog wouldn't block the light from its lantern.




  • This building contains modern restrooms for park visitors.

  • It is below the lighthouse on the west side of the hill.
