HI Pigeon Point Lighthouse hostel, located on the site of a historic lighthouse overlooking the Pacific Ocean, can feel as if it’s truly perched at the edge of the world. This is the go-to hostel for anyone who wants to feel secluded, removed from the bustle of everyday life. But many visitors may not realize just how much there is to actually do out here where the road ends and the vast ocean begins.
