As stated in a post a few days ago, Split Rock Lighthouse is located within a state park that shares it’s name. While we spent our morning touring the lighthouse and grounds, we spent a good portion of our afternoon exploring the rocky beaches along the rest of the park.
We parked in the Pebble Beach parking and picnic area. There were some picnic shelter areas right by the parking lot, but you can take a path further in and reach the beach.
From the beach you can get some beautiful views of the lighthouse up on the cliff.
There also is a little island just off of the beach. If the water were a little lower, you would be able to cross over to it pretty easily.
The beach itself is filled with rocks and you can find quite a few beauties.
I highly recommend taking some time down by the beach after visiting the lighthouse. You really can get some great photos of the lighthouse without having as many people around.
