Perched atop 361-foot-high Point Sur Rock, Point Sur lighthouse is located about 19 miles south of the Monterey and the Monterey Peninsula region. This is one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the world, and a drive farther south from the lighthouse is worth the time.


Work on the lighthouse was concluded here in 1889, some 14 years after the steamship Ventura wrecked nearby. The USCG automated the light in 1972.
