It is cool to be out on the point and see the view on a clear day.

“great views, historical info/experience couldve been better”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

The whole place is set on a Naval base, so don't freak out when you reach the gates at the entrance. Once you get inside at the Point itself everything is right there except the famous tide pools (which are aways down a side road & close at 4:30). The lighthouse and other attractions there give lots of historical information, but it isn't necessarily presented in the best way. The top of the lighthouse itself is blocked off-you can look through the grate while you're crammed in a narrow staircase-watch your head!
Great views of San Diego on a clear day!

“Lighthouse”
Reviewed 19 April 2012

As lighthouses go this is one of the nicer ones, the view is outstanding and it has been preserved very well for visitors, if you find yourself wanting a good view of the harbor or ocean go to the lighthouse you will not be disappointed!
