Its about 30 minutes from downtown and provides wonderful views. Well worth the drive. We spent just under an hour at the visitors center. We did not visit the lighthouse. I'd recommend 1-2 hours if you want to see it all and take your time....More

On 7/8, we drove to Pt Loma in the late morning and had a little "picnic" there with a beautiful, great bay view! The weather was so nice with the wind. Easy to find a parking space in the morning and hike a little bit...More

We liked the area especially Shelter Island and the views. We liked Old Town, LaJolla, Balboa Park and the Zoo. We could have missed Liberty Station. The views from rental were great but I think I would opt for a resort next time.

The view of San Diego from here is breathtaking. We arrived just before closing but they were kind enough to let us in for a few minutes. I was able to snap a few photos to remember this amazing view.

This is a great location for photos. We were able to view a submarine leaving the harbor and got great shots.

Great facility, great history, great views. Wait until the fog/haze burns off and then head up there. Allow at least a couple of hours, visit the lighthouse and the tidal pools.
