Once in, we drove along the cliffs, parked and walked down towards the tidal pools. The waves, water and views were spectacular. This area isn't handicapped accessible. The park had been a navel...

When you come down from the visitor center there is a small section of the west coast with the tidal pools. There is a hiking trail connecting both ends of the trail and there are parking lots at the ends and along the trail. Walking the trail will take about one hour roundtrip.

We loved visiting Point Loma. The views are great and it gave us a great afternoon. We walked and sat and learned a bit of history. We had lunch at a little Italian restaurant and just enjoyed exploring this community. This would be a great place to stay for a visit to San Diego

Great for a few hours or day of hiking and exploring the tidal pools or just relaxing along the ocean.

Easy to get around to visit downtown, shelter island just around the corner. Old town easily accessible by bus. Ocean beach well worth a visit. Close to airport. 3miles from sea world. Great place to visit.

This is where the best view of San Diego can be found, the National Park, Cemetery, and Lighthouse. Well worth the drive to the Point

Had the pleasure of playing baseball at College of the Nazarene, Pt Loma and enjoyed the wonderful view of the Bay from well above the surf. We were fortunate to find convenient parking and could have spent lots of time watching the people hiking on the beach area and the variety of boats in the surf. Truly relaxing and enjoyable.

Awesome view of Coronado and SAN Diego. Everyone should drive to the end of Point Loma to see the gorgeous views.
