Great views of San Diego and the mountains and river streams. Climb to the top and enjoy the vastness. Bring some lunch, take a hike, enjoy seeing the lighthouse and Coronado Bridge. Its a fun place to visit.

Beautiful spots to hike (bring water and good shoes!) and the views of San Diego are perfect. Great panoramic photo ops fron the lighthouse area, and the Tidepools are so cool. Timing with low tide is tricky this time of year, but at high tide you can see and hear the force of the waves that have carved this gorgeous landscape. If you do decide to go down near the tidepools, bring a towel. Definitely family friendly as the trails are well marked, but caution must be taken with little ones near the edges because there are no railings.

I recommend taking a lunch and spending hours contemplating the view! Nice hiking paths too and an interesting lighthouse.

We enjoyed the Point Loma area for its less busy roads and the views. We loved being able to see across to Coronado Island

We've been to the San Diego area 4 times and this was our first visit to Point Loma. Wow! The views are so beautiful. There are walking trails and restroom facilities The Cabrilla Monument is not that impressive, but the views steal the show. We have a National Park Pass and it was honored here, otherwise there's a fee to get by the gates.

This is our last stop on our day trip. Great views from here and a chance to visit the old Lighthouse also. This area was used as a military base during WWII.

The lighthouse here is the old closed with the new lighthouse stationed below the knoll . Not to much of a climb to see. There are trails all around if you wish to hike.

spent a couple of hours out here with the family taking in the view and hiking, great views for pictures not to mention watching the completely free air show put on by the air base, not sure if it was just that day but my boys loved watching the airplanes do laps in the sky which seemed to be some time of training they were completing.

Point Loma offers a great view of the entire San Diego coast! You can watch all the military ships and aircraft as well as personal boats. There is also a 2 mile hike that goes down to sea level which gets you below the haze at the top. It is also the home to the Cabrillo National monument (so you can use your Nat'l park pass to enter!). We were not able to enter the lighthouse because we did not have masks with us which was definitely a disappointment.
