The California Lighthouse is a lighthouse located near Arashi Beach on the northwest tip of Aruba.

This lighthouse was named for the steamship California, which wrecked nearby on September 23, 1891. It was formerly open to the public until a suicide.

Immediately adjacent is a restaurant called La Trattoria el Faro Blanco (English: Restaurant by the White Lighthouse), and also nearby is the Tierra del Sol Resort, Spa & Country Club.
