If you visit this spot be sure you go during low tide or you will NOT see any tide pools. Rangers and volunteers were great for asking questions and having answers.

Point Loma is one of our favorite places to visit in San Diego. The weather is always mild because it's so close to the ocean and has great views and restaurants.

This is one of my favorite spots in San Diego. It is peaceful and has great views. In season, you can watch the whales coming through.

Not sure exactly what the boundaries of Point Loma are, but it is a beautiful part of the city with shops, restaurants, and the Nazarene University worth visiting. We found a nice park, had lunch, and enjoyed the views and weather.

Our family enjoyed the Point Loma area and its beautiful views of the ocean and harbor. Close to Old Town San Diego. Make sure you eat at Point Loma Seafood-fantastic menu and reasonable prices.

Breathtaking views everywhere you look. Very peaceful place to sit and relax and take it all in. Many people arrived prior to sunset, however, there is space for everyone. If you get the chance, go and experience it all.
