    The caves here are beautiful! Not easily accessible though - you either have to climb down some rocky cliffs or access via kayaking. DOZENS of seals and sea lions nap all along the cliffs and caves, s...  more »

    Can really recommend. We went there by coincidence since we were not aware. Very interesting to see the wild animals and caves. It's also made in a way that you can stroll around and you are not fixed...  more »

    From the "the cave store" out, it can be a small entry fee directly through a tunnel and a few stairs rise to the "Sunny Jim Cave" down. If beforehand there is in the morning, there are hardly any people, so beautiful photo opportunities all to yourself. The caves can be also from the sea side to visit, but it are each morning several dozen inexperienced kayakers in the waves and make for half a traffic chaos on the water.

    A beautiful fast trip to do. The walk is pretty easy but not for everyone, you do have to go down and up a VERY long staircase. But the payoff is quite lovely.

    Inexpensive activity that kids will enjoy. The view is nice, but the views from above are nicer. The whole activity lasts about a total of 10 minutes. The stairs are steep, and the walk back up all 145 steps will have you out of breath.

    Good place to visit. Caves are accessible by kayaks I guess. You don't need to go through the Cave store.

    Its a nice place to pass the time. I specially like in evening with no sun and sound of sea with city lights faraway. The sign says unstable cliff.

Where to stay in San Diego

Offering accommodations at a wide range of price levels, San Diego is one of the easiest cities to stay in, regardless of whether you're simply passing through or hanging around for a long vacation. If you don't mind splurging, book your stay at a luxury downtown hotel or a lavish bayside resort. You can also rent a spacious private cottage within walking distance of the city's popular beaches. For a more affordable alternative, try a family-friendly hostel or quaint inn in a quiet residential area.
