So gorgeous

We went right at sunset and beyond - lovely drive with lots of pull offs for pictures. A must for late afternoon.

There are quite a few areas to sit and enjoy the view, and parking along the street is plentiful. If your mission is to watch the sun set over the Pacific Ocean, this a very nice place to do it.

This is an amazing park. You can see all sorts of plants and critters. Low tide is a great opportunity to explore the sea life

This is an amazing place, full of spectacular views. It's a no-brainer that one should go there during sunset. Parking is bit hard to find as they are only street parking around, so it's recommended to reach there an hour before sunset time.

Sooooo glad I added this to our trip To Do list!!! Parking can be hard to find but we lucked out and found one right by the cliffs. We hopped over a little wooden fence and climbed down a bit into the cliffs. We may or may not have taken a flock of birds spot on the cliffs edge. Bring... More

Enjoyed the marvelous views, and surprised by the number of people rushing to climb on the edge of the cliffs despite the warning signs!!

Sunsets have a way of showing us even on bad days, things are beautiful. The cliffs are one of the most peaceful places to recharge in San Diego. Take a picnic, find a place to sit, listen to the ocean, watch the waves, and catch the most beautiful sunsets in the West. It never disappoints.

We were in town for a wedding weekend and decided to check out the cliffs. We like taking photos so based off Tripadvisor reviews it seemed like a cool place. It was so much cooler than the photos online. There are no fences or very few of them to keep you from falling over, but that is part of the... More
