This lighthouse was named for the steamship California, which was wrecked nearby on September 23, 1891.
The lighthouse has completed a recent restoration in May 2016 which coincided with the 100th anniversary of the completion of the lighthouse.
Immediately adjacent to the lighthouse is a restaurant called La Trattoria el Faro Blanco (English: The White Lighthouse Restaurant), and also nearby is the Tierra del Sol Resort, Spa & Country Club.
The terrain is moon-like with sharp rocks sticking out of the ground, making it difficult for people to walk on without sturdy footwear.
