Have you ever dreamed of staying at a real lighthouse? Now you can. Explore nearby tidepools, and beaches, hike Montara mountain, and use the hostel as your base as you explore nature and encounter marine mammals and birds. Make your dreams a reality on the beautiful California Coast!
Pt. Montara is the ideal location for tide pooling, hiking and sea kayaking. That's exactly what you'll get to enjoy when you sign up for this getaway. Depending on the time of year, you may see gray whales migrating, harbor seals playing offshore or seabirds migrating on the Pacific thruway. After a long day exploring the coast, relax at the Pt.
