Sunset is a great time to shoot the lighthouse. Wait for a few minutes after sunset to get the golden glow. Also try to pick a day with lots of clouds in the sky - it will make the composition more interesting. The best time is probably the day before/after a summer storm.
Directions to discovery park
Make sure to spend some time at the visitor center near the entrance of the park. I usually park at the North parking lot and make my way towards the beach. There are a maze of trails here -make sure you keep track of where you are going.
If you don't want to rough it out on the trails and want to stick along the road - make your way up to the Utah avenue and follow it down to the beach. (Take the left fork at the other end of the playground near the north parking lot) This is probably the best way to make it back to your car after dark. Also make sure to take a flashlight with you to help you find your way after dark.
