Fabulous views of San Diego and ocean. Property is well-maintained. It closes at 5pm so get there in plenty of time.

“Beautiful views”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

We spent several hours walking around the lighthouse and the Cabrillo National Monument. If you have not been here before, it is well worth the $5.00 per vehicle admission. The view across the harbor and into downtown San Diego is beautiful. There were sailboats all over the harbor. The view out into the open ocean was also stunning. Great place to visit.

“Best bargain for fabulous views...”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

You only pay entry fee for your car. Views are incredible, both of N Island, Coronado, downtown SD, and on the W side of Pt Loma, the ocean. If you go at the right time, you will see whales, dolphins. The visitor center has great views outside, many publications and souveniers inside. It is worth the hike uphill to see the lighthouse inside, and the museum next door to it.
