This is my favorite spot in all is San Diego. It’s quiet, tranquil, and a 360 degree view of the ocean. Not many tourists end up here, which is plus. Definitely recommend it.

It is an amazing sight seeing place. Worth the visit! The museum has great information about Cabrillo who did the expedition to find this place.

Nice brief tour, must have a car to make it easy. Worth a nice walk to the cliffs and to catch some waves foam

Worth taking a peak but not for too long. Beautiful pictures to be made. No swimming. Be careful with cliffs.

This is so worth going to when in San Diego. The views of the bay and the town are killer and a must see. Going at night an seeing the city lights is a great option.

I like to go to Point Loma for the view of San Diego, North Island and the ocean. Visitor Center has some interesting displays. Occasionally see a fighter jet, but mainly helicopters. It is part of the National Park System, so there is an admission...More

What more could one ask for? We spent all of a Friday afternoon here and could have spent more time but all the rock hopping and climbing for the tidepools wore us out. If you visit the tidepools, please do your homework first to check...More

We spent part of a day here and wished it was a clear day. Lots of clouds but still enjoyed it. Check out the lighthouse and the trails around. Took some beautiful photos around the area.
