Welcome to Point Bonita!
Point Bonita is part of the largest urban national park in the United States, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. A secret jewel of the Bay Area, the Point Bonita Lighthouse, built in 1855, and was the third lighthouse built on the West Coast and help shepherd ships through the treacherous Golden Gate straights. Today, the lighthouse is still active and is maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard. The National Park Service provides access to visitors.
