It costs $10 to get in since it is a national park but its worth it. Amazing view of San Diego, Coronado, and whale watch(with good camera lens). There are cliffs and tide pools you can explore and just sit and enjoy the view and waves crashing.

When in the area recommend the time to go and see. Nice view. It's the ocean from another vantage point

What you can see on a clear day...North Island, Tijuana, Naval Sub Base, San Diego Airport and a whole lot of History! It may take a while to get there, but the trip and the $10 admission fee is well worth it. Please note that there are only vending machines at this US National Monument, bring food if you are...

This is worth the $10 entry fee. There's a little museum, light house, gift shop and tide pools at the bottom of the hill. Bring your walking shoes.

We went to the Cabrillo National Monument, walked up to the lighthouse and visited the beach. The only thing we didn't get to do is walk out on the pier - we will definitely return and do that next time!

There is a lot of history in the park, The views of the harbor are breath taking. They have a theater that on the hour shows a different history film . We watch the whale and tide pool films, learned things that we never knew about.
