Get to Know HI Point Montara Lighthouse

As you road-trip down California’s scenic Highway 1, this coastal hostel just 25 miles south of San Francisco is an ideal overnight stop. Here, you’ll wake up each morning to the sound of waves crashing on the shore from your cozy dorm or private room.

HI Point Montara Lighthouse hostel is the ideal getaway for nature and adventure lovers! Start your day right with a warming cup of coffee from the on-site espresso bar. Then explore tide pools on the beach just in back of the hostel, bike past breathtaking scenery on one of the many nearby trails, or head down to the charming little town of Half Moon Bay for a bite to eat. Nearby beaches are perfect for surfing, swimming, kayaking, windsurfing, and relaxing. Back at the hostel, enjoy a lively evening of board games or join your fellow travelers around the outdoor fire pit for conversation under the stars.
