“Nice for a picnic lunch”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

With a nice bike path and picnic areas this is a pretty decent option to stop and have lunch away from the hustle and bustle of Downtown. Parking is free and ample.

“Great Spot For A Quiet Lunch”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Up until two years ago wifey and I would drive 124 miles to our favorite deli in Pacific Beach then head over to 'our' bench across from the marina at the Sheraton on Harbor Island and watch the sailboats pass by. Then when we were done we'd clean our mess and drive home. Now-a-days the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak, and older. Why is youth wasted on the young? Meaning someone who's lived and learn now knows what to do with all that ability of the body but now doesn't have the body to do it with!

“Not a spot I would go out of my way for”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

As a park, Spanish Landing is average. There are a lot of other parks I would go to before Spanish Landing, though it does offer an exceptional view of the harbor and downtown skyline.

As a location to drop Car2Go on the way to a flight, it is great. There is plenty of parking, unlike on Harbor Island. It is about the same distance as the closest public parking on Harbor Island. Hopefully, SAN is able to complete their construction soon so that accessing the airport is a bit more direct. Currently, the only way to get to terminal one is to walk down to Harbor Island Dr. and turn in there. It is about a half mile, and there is plenty of sidewalk. I wouldn't recommend the walk for travelers with anything heavier than a roll-aboard.
