Great fun place to get out and do a little hiking and exploring. We wanted to get down to the beach but never did find an easy way down. Beautiful vistas and cool ocean breezes. A few places of Urban Art, aka Graffitti, Lots of people with their dogs and children.

I've been to San Diego a few times and have always had an interest in visiting this place. It's always been a bit tricky since we stay downtown and don't have a car when we visit. This time, we decided to use Uber to go and I'm so glad we did! We were also able to avoid parking, which I... More

My hubby and I used to live in San Diego and this was by far one of our favorite places to go for a walk/run. You can easily park in one of the many parking lots along the path and walk right along the ocean for miles. It's a great place for dogs as well. We definitely miss Sunset Cliffs!

Several parking areas all along the trail and of course, on the side streets, This soft dirt trail runs along the top of the cliff behind the rail and takes twists and turns around the rocks and tidepools-enjoy!

The park has a nice view of the skyline and of the ocean. Worth a 30 minute visit or so - would do in conjunction with Cabrillo.

This place is awesome! The best views of San Diego so far. The cliffs are beautifully and also the neighborhood is really nice. You can bike to Cabrillo Monument and then walk around this area. Definitely IS A MUST, IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL place believe me.

Not to difficult to reach from old town, just one bus ride away this is in my opinion the closest and best area to visit for beautiful cliffs and ocean views in the area. There are plenty of sunbathing opportunities if you want them or the option to hike down to the peninsulas point if that interests you. If you... More

This is one of the many great spots to view the sun setting on the ocean horizon, definitely not to be missed!
