One of most breath taking locales in San Mateo Valley is the Pigeon Point Lighthouse. An historic point of interest, it is also a key location for whale watching and an ideal spot to enjoy the sound of the surf in perfect solitude or with that special someone.A secluded path leads to a bluff-top viewing area where visitors can enjoy the majesty of the ocean and maybe catch a glimpse of a passing whale. There is also a lesser-known path through the flower garden that leads directly to the beach for a fun afternoon of building sand castles or just taking in the rays.Visit the official site for more information.
