The lighthouse is located up the hill from the Information/souvenir shop and provides a relaxed walk if you have the energy to do that in the heat. Blue skies, good views, the wind, the sea........ and you.

This lighthouse is no longer used, but serves as a museum. It was very well done, but I was disappointed that the tower was closed.

This is another place to visit when in San Diego. The views from this place are spectacular and should not be missed.

Interesting and a nice view from here. Worth the short walk out to the headland to get a great view from the coast

Explored the Old Point Loma Lighthouse... what a cute cottage! We climbed the spiral staircase to the living areas up top and imagined what it felt like to be living there at that time. The cottage was furnished as it was back then. The lens on the lighthouse by itself is a work of art and engineering/ ingenuity combined! We... More

I toured this lovely lighthouse. It is small but a comfy place and museum shows how life was being a lighthouse keeper.

Great old lighthouse, I prefer the new one better - but still great time viewing both of these plus the walk/hike around the beach area was great fun.
