We enjoyed our visit here. Its a nice place to take in some history, scenery and nature outside of downtown. We didn't spend a great deal of time here but glad we went. Apparently its $15 vehicle charge but if you get the bus $7...More

This monument is surrounded by water on three sides, and is a nice and place to relax and enjoy breathtaking views over the entire San Diego Bay. If you're lucky, you might even catch an atomic submarine getting under way from the Naval base below....More

A short drive from downtown, the park offers a great seaside view. The hike to the top (the old lighthouse) from the parking lot is a very short walk. Going on a sunny day is best.

One of my favorite places to go for a walk. You can see the city and the coastline, behind a pretty lighthouse and statue of Cabrillo Monument. Visitors center is interesting and the communications bunkers are fascinating.

Great place to walk around; there are trails everywhere. The views are stunning. Downtown San Diego and Coronado are visible. If you are lucky, you'll see a whale.

Beautiful views! Well worth the trip. If you have a national park passport, they have cancelation stamps. Nice staff, clean restrooms. The hike to the light house is up hill but worth it.

Good area to visit and take some pictures. The lighthouse tower was closed however. The tide pools are neat and lots of good spots for pictures along the coastline.

This was a beautiful area with so much history. Gorgeous views, very educational self-guided exhibits, great gift shop and a historical lighthouse..Old Point Loma Lighthouse. You must visit this gem! $15 per vehicle charge.

We saw a great crab or two, a seal off the shore and amazing creatures in the tide pools. A nice little walk.
