The sky was the most golden yellow sunset that I have ever seen. I live on the West Coast of Florida and see sunsets regularly but none this color. The views are spectacular.

Every time we stay in San Diego, we make it a point to go to Sunset Cliffs to watch the sunset at least once. It is named appropriately because there is no better place than this to watch the sun go down over the ocean!

Beautiful and breath taking ocean/sunset views! It wasn't too crowded either. If you want to get some great photos of a california sunset, this is the place to go!.

Well worth the drive to see the sunset!. I suggest you, take a small wine basket/cheese and sit awhile, after the sun sets. You will miss the traffic of everyone who leaves right away. California rocks!

Beautiful. Love this spot. Not the easiest place to walk, especially if you're scared of heights! But it's totally worth it.

Our daughter and her fiancé took us to Sunset Cliffs at the end of a lovely dinner with them. The sunset was so beautiful and the view just lovely. It is a great stop to make and you have to see it while in San Diego. T

The park on top of the bluffs provides a great view of the sunset. You can take the stairs down to the rocks below and explore during low tide. Although the park is not the post pristine in San Diego, it does provide a beautiful view of the sunset with surfers in the waves below.

The Natural Park provides visitors with beautiful photo opportunities. Wear comfortable shoes...if you intend to scale the cliffs to ocean. It does have Port-O-Potties...but you might want to make sure you have some tissues with you. One never knows if there will be toilet paper available. There are a couple of small sandy beaches at the bottom of the cliffs...but... More

I drove over to the sunset cliffs after flying in on business. The sunset was disappointing as it was a cloudy evening but the area is quite beautiful. It is a nice area to walk above the beach with a great view. I hope to return later in the week and see if the sunset cooperates as well as explore... More
