This lighthouse was named for the steamship California, which was wrecked nearby on September 23, 1891.
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.
It is possible to sight a herd of wild goats just south of the light house. The terrain there is moon like with sharp rocks sticking out of the ground, making it difficult for people to walk on without sturdy footwear.
