Since 1885 Point Robinson has provided “fog and lighthouse service” on the east end of Maury Island (although most visitors would think of it as part of the larger Vashon Island).
About Point Robinson
The lighthouse is a twin of the one at Alki Beach about 13 miles to the north (see photo). Situated on a cozy ten acres on the east shore of Maury Island on south side of Vashon, this lighthouse makes for a lovely day outing with its combined sandy beach, trails, and picnic tables.
This is a beloved spot for residents of Vashon Island and visitors alike thanks to its historical and marine conservancy, and of course, gorgeous views. Tours of the lighthouse begin in mid-May and continue through mid-September, where you can learn more about its rich history.
A family friendly spot with short hiking trails, wonderful views of Mt. Rainier and a clean beach, this is a spot you’re sure to love this spring and summer. And honestly, who doesn’t love a trip where the kids learn a little bit?
Directions to Point Robinson Park
If during your visit here you fall in love and want to extend your visit, Vashon District Park has two renovated keepers’ quarters that share the beach with the lighthouse available for rental.
