    What a fun little hike down the stairs to the cove. It was just exciting enough without being strenuous or scary. My mom with a recent knee replacement even did it. It is kinda slippery so hold onto t...  more »

    Store is great for chicks and knick-knack collectors or a quick souvenir. The stairs down to the came are pretty neat and the view from the cave is cool. I'd recommend going early in the AM for the best pictures or you'll get washed out pictures closer to sunset.

    I walked past this store many times and not notice that there is an entrance to a cave where you can enjoy beautiful views of the ocean. There are about 150 steps going down the lighted tunnel to access the cave. Costs 5.00 for adults and 3.00 for kids. Worth the price. Just watch out your return coming back up ! It is hard !

    It was $5 to walk down the stair to the very small landing for Sunny Jim Cavern. Still was nice and cool view from down there. Lots of people coming around in kayaks and whatnot so tough to get a clear and clean pic. Narrow passage to the cave. The shop is good for trinkets and refreshments.

    The cave stairs were well kept along with the hand rails.The height clearance near the end of the stairs is low; so people that are taller or as tall as 6' 0" will have a bit of trouble near the end of the stairs. The dock at The bottom of the stairs is small and can get easily crowded if a large group comes into the cave. The store itself has a wide range of souvenirs.

    Great attraction! Best stop for gifts and knic knacks. My girlfriend found these gorgeous silver turtle earrings in their jewelry store. She loved how well curated the selections were

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.
