The way to get into this area would make anyone weary but it was definitely worth breaking the rules for once. We went on a weekday at 5pm and other than some skateboarders the area was completely empty. It turned out to be a great...More
I was visiting the area for a couple of hours and a friend suggested that we visit Sunken City. I'd never been there and knew nothing about it so sure, why not?! After scaling a fence and a short scramble down a steep trail I...More
It's amazing to see what's now left of this area where homes starting sinking and sliding into the ocean...one car see the remnants of streets and of foundations. It is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS to walk around in the area. We could see many people had wiggled...More
It was not assessable to the city, all fenced due to the safety reason. If you have to get closer, there was a small trail to walk along the fence. Other than some ruins, nothing was left. Greenland, playground nearby were good for picnic, to...More
This might seem like an interesting attraction, but people have died here. People regularly fall off of the cliff, and die, or are seriously injured. One person was recently impaled on a fence. It's actually illegal to go here, and the cops have cracked down...More
I live about 5 minutes from Sunken City. There is a lot of crime there, the cliffs are totally unstable and dangerous and the LAPD is really cracking down on people being there. On April 22, 2018 the LAPD and Park Rangers did a crackdown...More
I had never been to Sunken City, and didn't know it was considered trespassing either. There were a bunch of other people already inside, and going inside when I came. Other people had also recommended that I check it out, so I did. It was...More
My husband and I and lots of his friends have gone to Sunken City probably eight times in the past two years. We always love it and there are always lots of people there as well. This time, however, my husband and his friends all...More
We parked at Point Fermin Park & fortunately saw some people hop the concrete fence & shimmy under the barrier to walk out to the cliff.
The views were incredible!
WARNING: Many people have been severely hurt & died climbing down the cliff.
For me and my group, we got a $525 fine or community service, and it was reduced to an infraction. One of my friends before got a $50 fine (not sure if it was reduced) though, so not sure how much the verdict changes... More
For me and my group, we got a $525 fine or community service, and it was reduced to an infraction. One of my friends before got a $50 fine (not sure if it was reduced) though, so not sure how much the verdict changes depending on the day, since so many people go thru the courthouse daily for sunken city tickets

You'll have to slip under the cliff hanging part...you will most likely have to scoot laying on the ground getting a little dusty. I have seen some people walking to other openings however, unknown where. One time I was able to slip through the bars that were pried apart whereas another time it was a no go. Last time I was 215lbs and had to do the scoot on the cliff ledge.
