We arrived here about 1 hour prior to sunset and walked down to the tide pools. My bf loves photography, and he said that the lighting on the cliffs was absolutely perfect. We drove back up to the Visitor's center to see a beautiful view of downtown San Diego and Coronado Island. We walked up to the Whale Overlook just as the sun was setting. The sunset was initially just average, but 20 minutes after sunset the entire sky and ocean turned light pink, then hot pink, then bright orange. It was probably the most beautiful sunset I had ever seen! $5 entry fee is good for 5 days, so I will definitely be back before it expires!

Great place in Point Loma, many people may not know about this tourist attraction. The cost to enter is $5 per car. The line on a Saturday or Sunday will be long to enter and it closes at 4:30. Take a look at the tide pools, lighthouse, and visitor center. The view of San Diego is what really separates this park from the rest of San Diego. You can view downtown, the bay, Coronado from a different side. Must do when in San Diego.

If getting a great panoramic view of San Diego is on your to-do list, don't miss out on this place. $5 will get you a pass for entry to the area, which is valid for up to 1 week. Make sure you have a camera handy to snap a photo of the monument itself and the city skyline and harbor area.
