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.

  • Stayed with a friend who is lucky enough to call Point Loma home. I am jealous, to say the least! Gorgeous views of the city if you know where to look, quaint neighborhoods, and many scenic attraction...  more »
  • For $10 admission, who reserves map then for validity of a week, you have a great view on SD, Coronado Iceland and the Pacific. Also the cemetery sites left and right of the road, places that respect for the deceased asks the living are on the way. Worth a visit!

  • Absolutely killer views of the city along with a very sobering reminder of our service men and women's sacrifices. Wonderful place to come see the sunset out over the Pacific.
