My Point Bonita photo diary is finally here! This post is long overdue. I always wanted to share my photos from this mini adventure but for some reason, I could never sit myself down to write about it until now.
Everything about Point Bonita was so beautiful and I just happened to stumble upon it through a Google search. I was looking for an adventurous place to explore and have always wanted to visit a lighthouse. They just seem so mysterious and mystical to me, which completely draws me in. Maybe it’s that whole “light in the dark” kind of thing?
Surprisingly, the best part of the trip wasn’t seeing the lighthouse. It was everything that led up to it. The views were amazing and the “hike” up to the lighthouse was a ton of fun. Keep reading to see what I’m talking about!

This is the bridge everyone has to cross if they want to get to the lighthouse. It was terrifying because there is nothing below you but ocean and rock. It also swayed a bit when the winds blew so I was really nervous walking across, but it was worth it!
There’s also a short tunnel you have to walk through to get to the bridge. No lamps, whatsoever, but the sunlight (or what little of it shone through the fog) was enough to light the way to the other side. I don’t think I’ve ever walked through a tunnel, so it was really incredible imagining how it was made through this huge mountain. Call me paranoid, but I was a little scared it could collapse or cave in!
It was extremely foggy that day so I was a little sad that I couldn’t see the ocean as much, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was like this all the time.
If you love to sightsee and want to get in tune with nature, you have to visit Point Bonita, especially if you’re from the Bay! It’s just a little bit north of the Golden Gate Bridge in Sausalito. I know for a fact that my photos don’t do it justice, and the fog robbed me of an even better sightseeing experience, so I’ll definitely be going back one day.
