Jaw-dropping sunsets

Perfect for honeymooners who want to have a romantic evening. As soon as the sun is down, the park then gets a bit unsettling and concerning with the interesting individuals

We enjoyed the views from the cliffs and walked down the staircase to the coast and walked along the rocks. We couldn't find a bus that ran there so we used an Uber ride.

The cliffs themselves are amazing. If you go up the "hill" to the park itself you can get an amazing view of the cliffs and the bay.

This is a pretty place to see and take a walk along the trails. If you want a quiet and soothing place to be go here. It you like the crash of waves and more action this is not the place to go.

If you're looking to watch the sunset in San Diego it doesn't get better than Sunset Cliffs. You can walk right down onto the cliffs that line the sea and sit there for the best view. There's parking all along the road and a walking path you can follow along the cliffs. A must do!

Every time I go home I watch the sun set on these cliffs. Bring a coffee, maybe a snack, your camera, and a blanket because it can get windy. So peaceful and beautiful. Definitely a place to clear your head and breath in fresh air.

Stunning views of the ocean and sunsets at this beach. One of our favorite places to visit! We stopped here on our drive down from Anaheim and were so happy that we made the stop.

A strip of land along the road that fronts the Pacific ocean, it provided some great views, a little bit of hiking, and access for surfers. We spent a little bit of time here, but rain and clouds prevented us from enjoying the sunset everyone raves about.

I don't think anyone will regret stopping here. Parking can be a little tough to find and it is a popular stop especially for sunset but is free and there are multiple places to park. Great views and small walking trails. There are even metal steps that take you all the way down to the beach. You can wet on... More
