Hike was easy & plenty of parking. The trails are dog friendly. Saw 3 or 4 flocks of pelicans - so cool to watch them fly! Did not get many pictures as it was a hazy day. The whole area is a very nice drive for looking at houses too.

Easy drive from downtown San Diego, airport, Sea World.. Easy to find. Road is right along the cliffs. Easy to access the cliffs to watch the sunset.

Seemed like many people didn't know of this spot, nestled at the bottom of a hill in a ritzy neighborhood. Parking on the street was abundant, and the views from the rocks were amazing. This isn't really a "park" so much as a nice viewing location, but worth a stop especially if the nearby Point Loma sites are closed.

Sunset Cliffs is a gorgeous spot to view the Pacific and watch the surfers. Watch out though, because the cliffs can be dangerous if you get too close to the edge.

Most beautiful place in San Diego to watch the waves crash on the rocks and have a glass of wine while watching the sunset. Stay away from the edges, they are sandstone and could give way. There are designated parking areas and guard rails by the street. This is a must see in San Diego.

Went to this location twice while in San Diego. Great spot to watch the sunset into the ocean horizon.

For those who love to take sunset photos, this is a must visit. Be careful when you get close to the cliff edges. There is parking space near the most popular photo spot. You need to walk a few steps towards the cliff and climb a bit. Suggest to wear mountain shoes.

The cliffs were amazing but be careful they look dangerous. If you have kids be sure to hang on to them. Nice relaxing views.
