Directions to HI - Point Montara Lighthouse
Map & Directions
The hostel is located 25 miles south of San Francisco, just off Coastal Highway One at 16th Street, between the small towns of Montara and Moss Beach. The lighthouse is not easily visible from the road, and is located on a curve in the road.
When driving south on Highway 1, the hostel driveway is located just past the end of a guardrail -- turn right and drive through the chain-link fence gate into the parking lot.
When driving north on Highway 1, we highly recommend passing the hostel entrance and turning around in Montara, then entering the hostel driveway from the southbound lane.
Free parking is available at the hostel on a first-come first-served basis.
USING PUBLIC TRANSIT
From the Daly City BART station, take SamTrans bus 110 to the Linda Mar Park and Ride in Pacifica.
On WEEKDAYS, take SamTrans bus 294 from Pacifica to Highway 1 and 16th Street. Tell the driver where you are going, as 16th Street is not an automatic stop. Walk north 1/2 block on Highway 1; the hostel is on your left.
On WEEKENDS, take SamTrans bus 17 from Pacifica to Main and 7th Streets. Walk south on Main (which becomes a pedestrian path) to 16th Street and carefully cross the highway onto the hostel driveway.
