Amazing views and gorgeous sunsets🌅!

Excellent cliff walk with amazing views! Seems to be a big draw for people every evening. Cliff diving at one section. Beautiful homes on the opposite side of the street.

This was one of my favorite things my husband and I did when traveling to San Diego! We rented a car during our trip and drove up to Laguna Beach and stopped at Sunset Cliffs on the way back. My friends could not believe our photos were unfiltered and not retouched! Beautiful if you get the opportunity!

They didn't name it Sunset Cliffs for nothing. Beautiful vistas overlooking the cliffs with miles and miles of ocean in the backdrop. Great place for an evening picnic or just to spend with your sweetie.

There park earned its name for good reason. This is THE place to watch the sunset in San Diego. Don't wait till the last minute or you will miss the finale searching for someplace to park! If you visit on a weekend, you will probably be competing for space with a wedding party capturing amazing photographs for their special day.

Relatively easy to get too. Great spot for a walk at any hour. Photo opportunities are endless. We did some cliff jumping here, which I would only recommend if you are accompanied by someone who is familiar with the area as the water can be shallow/too rocky at some points.

Beautiful view of the ocean! Stay for ten minutes or as long as you would like. This was our second visit and just as pretty as last year.

Show up here about an hour before sunset on a clear or partly cloudy day and be prepared to stand in awe. Take pictures, bring a chair and someone to wrap your arms around, or climb down to the beach via a rope on the cliffside and let the water lap into you.

Sunset Cliffs Natural Park has some of the most dynamic sunset views. You must get there early to park or walk from a distance. The sun setting behind pacific ocean waves is worth it.

We're from Atlanta so we had to see the sunset while all of our friends were sleeping. Most beautiful thing to see! Get there a little earlier to watch because the sun goes down fast!

A must see for anyone visiting San Diego. The sun setting over the water is simply breath taking...Mother Nature at her finest. The people watching is pretty incredible, too. We parked along the roadway and walked with our two dogs the first time we went, the second time we took in the view from the car as we ate the... More
