We liked everything about it. Getting around was easy. It was interesting to look at the grave sites.

“Wow! What a view!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Both my parents are buried there and everytime we go there the view and the setting take your breath away. Just up the road is the lighthouse another must see attraction. Once again, the view is spectacular.

“Stunning and moving”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We went at dusk and had a gorgeous view of the San Diego harbor below with the cemetery in the foreground. It was a solemn time for everyone there.

“Endless Stones”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

It's so humbling to see but at a most beautiful location. Both sides of the road. Amazing how the graves are laid in such order. It's on the way to the Cabrillo monument. If you take the time to think of the irony-I'm on vacation and these strangers died for my freedom. You look at the stones-so many, many stones-and you see it as a whole, but each grave has it's own story of an individual who gave the ultimate sacrifice. It somehow didnt feel right that I was enjoying the view and the sunset but hopefully, it will make me remember it always.
