The natural, rocky coastline boasts a flat, paved walking path lined with wildflowers, coastal flora, and panoramic views of the Pacific. It’s about a mile long each way and can be accessed from a few different points, including from Sunset Drive or Ocean View Boulevard. A perfect place for a peaceful walk with the sound of crashing waves.

2. Stop by the Point Pinos Lighthouse

Point Pinos Lighthouse is a stunning, historic lighthouse surrounded by green grassy fields and an abundance of native plant species. The picturesque lighthouse makes a fantastic photo subject, particularly during sunrise and sunset. You can also tour the inside of the lighthouse.

4. Visit the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary

This small, beautiful butterfly preserve houses tens of thousands of butterflies during migration season.

Be sure to bring your binoculars so that you have a better chance of seeing as many butterflies as possible!

A stunning, vibrant bloom, called the Magenta Ice plant, bursts into life all along the coastline at Oceanview Boulevard. The breathtaking vibrant pink ‘carpet’ stretches for miles along the coast, attracting droves of visitors to come see the natural wonder for themselves.
