There are quite a few places along Sunset Cliffs Blvd where you can park your car and capture the amazing views of a sunset off the coast. Spend a week in San Diego and came to the cliffs to watch three sunsets.

Sometimes a little hard to find parking but well worth it. The views are awesome. Watched the kids jumping off the arch and into the ocean. Make sure you go and watch the sunset. It is the best.

With plenty of ocean to look at, enjoying a run, stroll or simply watching the waves roll in is a pleasure. Their is something magical,about being at the ocean and breathing in the fresh sea air.

This was our favorite spot in San Diego to watch the sunset. There are so many different places to sit and not be disturbed. We loved going here several nights. We also visited the beach during the day. Very fun. Although I will mention that we felt safe, but I would not say on this particular day there were a... More

This park was an amazing site to watch the sunset. Parking was difficult to find, understandably so since the experience was so beautiful. Would recommend for couples as a romantic night to relax and watch the sunset over the city.

If you have a car, this is worth the drive. It's a little out of your way but it will only take an hour out of your day. This is the perfect location to catch a Californian sunset. I checked to see what time the sunset was going to be. It said 8:00pm so I made my way out there... More

If you have a chance to go to Ocean Beach, check out Sunset Cliffs. There is parking and a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean. Just breathtaking!
