Situated near the end of Point Loma peninsula, west and south of the San Diego airport, is a fairly long drive from most tourist sites. It's worth a visit both for the history and views. Further, on the way to the Lighthouse, you pass through a National Monument, a Navy installation, and by an exquisitely maintained--but almost unknown--National Cemetery with thousands of graves neatly arranged and marked with white headstones.
Neither the Old Point Loma Lighthouse nor the various viewing overlooks are far from the parking area, and various explanatory boards give interesting information about the sites and history. Quite often Navy ships pass by on their way to or from one of the San Diego Navy installations in the Bay.
