Walk along the cliff side, but be careful. Look for the seals basking in the sun and the kayakers down below! Beautiful views!

Our family very much enjoyed this area. My boys are 13 and 6 and it was enjoyable for both. We hiked along the cliffs and were able to spend some time in the tide pools. We sat on one of the cliffs and watched sea lions swim by. We also enjoyed seeing the military bunker near the lighthouse. It was... More

There was a wedding scheduled the day I visited so I walked along the cliffs and admired the beauty. I came back for the most stunning sunset ever!

The coastline is extraordinary, the waves and cliffs, the natural diversity and just beautiful hiking trails. Beware of your surroundings, watch your pets and leave a zero footprint for others to enjoy please! Great place for any special occasion and relax parking will open up sometime along the way...

We stayed right on the water and it was perfect! The cliffs are terrific to walk, run or hike along the water - and you can see whales and sea lions and all other kinds of wildlife. My favorite stay in San Diego yet!

Outstanding, I never knew about all the sights in Point Loma and Cabrillo. The views are amazing and some very nice hiking trails exist, that'll take you to some remote beaches. I've been coming to San Diego for thirty years and finally found this hidden gem. It's worth the venture.

We stopped in here while waiting for Cabrillo National Monument to open. Erosion has many areas off limits, for good reason, but it makes it a little hard to navigate. Beautiful views of surfers, nice surf breaks, and coastal birds.
