Point Loma is much more than the magnificent view at the end of the point in Cabrillo National Monument. It is a vibrant bayside neighbourhood with a character all its own, consisting of not only Point Loma but also the Loma Portal and Midway districts. The laid back attitude. The early morning fishermen getting ready to embark. The local shops... More

Great views! The cemetery was humbling. We were able to see the F16 jets take off from this point. Incredible! Combine this with a trek down to the Cliffs along the water's edge and it makes for a great day of sight seeing.

Point Loma is an area, more than just a particular spot. Pretty drive. Pretty walks in various places. There are places to picnic too. Can't beat the views. Makes you sad you can't afford a house out here!

The area is known for its mild climate, fishing, boating and shipyards, yacht clubs and beautiful homes with magnificent views, but mostly its known for its proximity to both San Diego Bay on one side of the peninsula and the ocean on the other....

It is quite a long drive from downtown but it is worth it. The point is quite high and the view of San Diego is impressive: downtown, Coronado, the harbor, plains landing and taking off and the hills and mountains on the horizon. It is within a navy area and there is a very suggestive Vet cemetery.
