Año Nuevo Island Camera

Explore Año Nuevo Island


Located 1/2 mile from the mainland, Año Nuevo Island is not accessible for the general public. It has been set aside with other sections of Año Nuevo State Park as a Natural Preserve, dedicated as habitat for a diversity of wildlife. Although now a home for marine mammals and nesting birds, evidence of human occupation is still evident from the historic light station buildings that began operation in 1872. These buildings were abandoned in 1948 and some still stand today. 

The Año Nuevo Island camera will provide viewers with spectacular views of Año Nuevo Island live.  Several angles will be displayed for 30 seconds before the camera pans to the next position.
