Point Loma, San Diego
(4.7/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
With stunning views, historic sights, warm beaches, and a welcoming community, Point Loma is a gem of the West Coast. This hilly peninsula covers 1,800 hectares (4,400 acres), and offers opportunities for hiking, swimming, and surfing. Explore some of the famous landmarks, such as the iconic lighthouse and the national cemetery. The Cabrillo National Monument marks the long history of the peninsula, celebrating the first European mission that landed on America’s Pacific coast. The west side houses the Sunset Cliffs, a geological formation that contains dinosaur fossils. Take care while exploring the cliffs, especially on windy days, as they might be wet and unstable. Use our San Diego vacation builder to arrange your visit to Point Loma and other attractions in San Diego.

  • This is a place in San Diego that I would advise you not to miss. Here you can see the Cabrillo National monument, the Old Pont Loma Lighthouse and the beautiful views. You arrive by car, the entrance is free of charge. Here you can buy passes to the parks. Here we found a decent line to enter, so attention to opening hours. If you go too late, you run the risk of not being able to enter.
