Welcome to HI-Montara Point Montara Lighthouse!
On the rugged California coast, 25 miles south of San Francisco, historic 1875 fog signal station and lighthouse have been preserved and restored by HI-AYH and the California Department of Parks and Recreation, in cooperation with the Coast Guard. Explore the coastline; watch annual gray whale migration (Nov-April). Visit the nearby James Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, a four-mile stretch of tide pools full of starfish, crabs, mussels, abalone, and sea anemones. Enjoy beaches, swim, surf, kayak, jog, horseback ride, windsurf and bicycle along the shore.
Please note 4 of our private rooms can accommodate up to 3 people, however the beds are Houston style consisting of a shared double bed on the bottom and a twin bunk above.
