Great place to visit. The light house is cool to checkout and we usually sit on a bench overlooking the San Diego harbor. Hiking down and up the hill is a nice way to exercise. Sometimes there's a lot of people but still a nice place to check out. The tide pools are always great to visit too.

Such a different perspective on San Diego from the point. Well worth the drive. We were there on Veterans Day so there was no fee; we were more than happy to make a donation in lieu of the fee. Strongly recommended for all ages.

Wasn't sure whether my Cabrillo monument review covered this, but enjoyed this whole outing so much I had to include this here! Amazing views of the city, Mexico and the sea. Perfect spot to watch the sun go down.

My husband visited yesterday on a sunny but cool day. He was on a pedal cycle and said it was a great ride from the Marina, but the submarine base tended to block some of the more obvious access points.

Just stop for a minute and look around. So much to see from Pt. Loma!! All kinds of picturesque places on top of the hill and so much to see and do. Great places to eat, great bars, great part of town. We will try to live in this place next time we are stationed in San Dog! (Military).

Very nice park. A small area but much to see and learn. I liked seeing San Diego from a different view. You can see the Naval base and activity from there. There's a lighthouse and short films to learn about the area. Nice place for the family.

This national park has some of the most amazing views I've ever seen. From one side you can see all of San Diego and the other is beautiful ocean.

I love this place! Anywhere you go in Point Loma is a good choice. I particularly like to eat lunch at Point Loma Seafood which is a casual place with outside tables where you can look at the fishing boats coming and going. There is a lovely harbor walkway where you can stroll for about an hour and see San... More

The day we traveled to San Diego from Atlanta, we drove up the coast on US 1. My wife had said she would like to watch the sunset, so I quickly turned around and headed back south to Point Loma. The park closes at 5pm, and sunset was 4:47pm that day. It cost $5 to get into the park, but... More
