A must see!

The coastline along here is so beautiful. You will be taking tons of pictures of the view! Get out and walk along the road?

If I could return to one place in San Diego, this would be it. There are panoramic views of the ocean, views of downtown San Diego, the Cabrillo National Monument, a lighthouse, the famous tide pools, a military cemetery, hiking trails, a visitors center, and clean bathrooms. If you love photography, bring your camera and plan to spend some time... More

Another great place to spend the evening looking out in to the seas and also the city. San Diego is one of my favorite places to be and this place has to be right up there (no pun intended).

I loved the peacefulness here. Walked in the lighthouse (very small one but still nice). We walked around and just breathed in the fresh air and the beautiful scenes.

Nice beaches, houses and small shops make a unique atmosphere. San Diego skyline view is part of the scenery.

This is a nice place to enjoy the views of Coronado, the ocean, the bay and San Diego. The fog eventually moved off so the views improved. The Bayside Trail is a nice walk - keep in mind, what goes down, has to go back up.

This was an easy to find and approach attraction. Besides the Cabrillo statue, there is a nice visitors center with a lot of history displayed therein. The lighthouse is also a museum of sorts rich in history. There are a few military history sites also. The view is unbelievable!! You can see Mexico and entire base on Coronado and the... More

A lot of friends had suggestions of places to see in San Diego, but apparently none of them had been to Point Loma. So glad we decided to drive up there. When you're up at the point by the Visitor Centr & Lighthouse, you get spectacular views of the city and the Bay with Mexico off in the distance to... More

We loved the Tidal Pools! So did our five and three-year-olds. We saw crabs, sea slugs, limpets, and barnacles. We got to climb rocks, balance above the ocean, look for fossils in the strata, and splash in puddles. There are volunteers to point things out (or go it on your own. A field guide helps), and you can stay as... More
