Point Fermin Park and Lighthouse
The Point Fermin Park is just a short bike ride away from La Corona Del Mar. It’s a great place to have a picnic, listen to Music by the Sea on a summer afternoon or watch some Shakespeare by the Sea in the small amphitheater. Point Fermin Park consists of 37 landscaped acres of tree-shaded lawns, colorful gardens and a promenade along the edge of the palisade. Along the rugged bluffs are breathtaking views of the coast toward Santa Catalina Island. You may even be able to spot playful dolphin or harbor seals.. There are trails west of the park that lead to the beach and tide pools below.
Also on the grounds, the beautiful Point Fermin Lighthouse. Built in 1874, the Point Fermin Lighthouse was the first navigational light into the San Pedro Bay. Phineas Banning, with the support of many local businessmen, petitioned the Federal Government and the US lighthouse Board to place a lighthouse on the point in 1854. Read More….
