Don't be put off, follow the signs to the park through the navel base and past an enormous grave yard called Fort Rosecrans. There is parking, toilets, and a visitor centre. From there it is a gentle walk up hill to the old light house...More

The cemetery, views over both the bay and the ocean are amazing. We went at sunset and then drove over the hill to the cemetery. The headstones lined up with the bay in the distance is stunning. All beautiful!

It is OK to go a visit Point Loma. There is a newly added visitor store where you can spend few dollars. This did not exist when I started to go there about 25 years ago. Very crowed area and a bid complicated to drive....More

Whether you look left or right there’s water everywhere. Great walking for all ages. We are starting to get into the gray whale migration. We didn’t see anything today, but we have in the past. Good luck and enjoy.
