Trip Planner:   USA  /  California  /  San Diego  /  Point Loma
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.

  • I can't imagine there is a better way to see San Diego than traveling to Point Loma. With Cabrillo and the tide pools and the trails and light house and bunkers, there is so much to see.  more »
  • Absolutely lovely, USD$10 to enter the reserve and it is a priceless view of San Diego and the Pacific Ocean. Just gorgeous and was well worth it.  more »
