"Beacon on the Shore"

Like most functional lighthouses, this one enjoys a beautiful location by the sea. Open to the public on the second Saturday of each month, Point Vicente Lighthouse and its little museum are quite the center of activity as tourists, sightseers and families head over for a day out. Its serene location in West Rancho Palos Verdes makes it a hit with professional photographers as well. The point marked history in 1790, when it was named by Captain George Vancouver for his friend, Friar Vicente. Standing 67 feet tall (20 meters), it is allegedly one of the brightest beacons in the area, and boasts of radio navigation and automated equipment of modern times. A mysterious "Lady of the Light"-a woman who fell off the cliffs as she waited for her lover one misty night-is said to prowl the premises on occasion.
