This is a gorgeous college campus. My daughter visited Point Loma for a conference and really loved it here. It is literally on the beach. Wish I could have gone to college at a place like this!

This location offers a variety of experiences, from the Cabrillo National Monument and tide pools, Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, various naval installations, and beaches and seacliffs.

It is a nice area to walk around and get an excellent view from the top. Make sure you stop by at the light house to check it out.

My hometown. I love it it. next to lots of marinas. great eating places. lots of traffic. Give you a sense of what San Diego was like in the 40's-50's.

the views from this headland are quite spectacular. we wish we had visited earlier in the week. while it was hot in La Jolla the sea breeze made this headland comfortably warm. Patricia gave us an excellent 1 hour tour of the local flora and fauna - 1pm daily, really interesting.

The view atop Point Loma is truly amazing. If possible, go on a clear haze free day. The 360 degree view will take your breath away. If your lucky, you might see a whale or two!

I've seen better views, but it was no doubt beautiful. The kids could careless about the view and we told them we were going to the beach after we did this quick mommy and daddy thing. Since it was an extra on my itinerary as in if we get to it, but not a must see, I wish we skipped... More

The drive was very nice. I didn't realize it was on a military facility and you drive past a National cemetery which is very moving. The views are great and we had no problem parking. The cliffs are interesting and the rocky shore is also fun. I didn't really think of tide pools, just a rocky shoreline. We saw a... More

Interesting place for learning the history of the area. Breath taking view of the harbor and the naval ships and sail boats enjoying the beautiful weather.
