Up the hill from Arashi Beach, this tall sentinel is named for an old wrecked ship called the California, which is not the ship of similar name (Californian) that stood by ineffectually while the Titanic sank, despite much local lore to the contrary. The views are great and the wind is strong, especially at the top. This is a popular spot to catch the sunset.
