Pt. Vincente Light
Palos Verdes, California

The 67 foot tower of Point Vincente was built in 1926, and it's third order Fresnel lens remains active today. The million-candlepower light shines 20 miles out to sea. Today the tower and buildings are part of the Coast Guard station and are off-limits to visitors. However, excellent views of the light can be seen from the surrounding area. The view from the 100 foot cliffs is magnificent, with Catalina Island visible in the distance. Recently the Coast Guard has opened the light station on the second Saturday of each month, 9-4pm.

The light is reached from Palos Verdes Drive, east of Torrance just south of where Hawthorne Blvd. intersects Palos Verdes.
