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.

  • Our visit was on a December day, when it was sunny, but we were later on in the afternoon, so the park was almost closed when we arrived. Neat views and nice informative signage.
