We went to see the Cabrillo Tide Pools and then visited this monument afterwards. It is worth the time to see it. It is set high on a cliff overlooking Coronado Island and the bay.

We really needed a day out. The tide pools and sea breeze were long overdue. The entrance fee is $20 or $35 for an annual pass.

My partner is in the Navy so we got in for free, and the weather was beautiful. We stopped at the visitor center, which was closed due to COVID, but there was a ranger on duty to answer questions and stamp our NPS passport books! The walk to the lighthouse and the viewpoints up there was easy and quick. The best part was walking down to the tidepools. We were there during high tide, so no tide pools but we did get to watch the giant waves crash against the rocks! Will definitely be heading back to check out low tide!
