Description:

The Main Beach lifeguard tower, a former gas station component from Broadway and Coast Highway, holds historical significance as a city landmark. Moved to the beach in the 1920s by horse power, it served as the lifeguard headquarters until 1985 when a new center was established. With around 400 square feet of space, the tower is now multifunctional, housing lifeguard programs, an observation room on the top floor, and first aid and rescue equipment on the main floor. A basement in the sand serves as storage for surfboards and other equipment.
