There are, in fact, no real beaches on Point Loma and the swimming opportunities are poor and downright dangerous. But it’s one of the best places in San Diego to meditate on waves crashing on the cliffs and explore tidepools in the rocky reefs full of marine life. Drive out to Sunset Cliffs for a magnificent sunset, where the sandstone bluffs blaze with color, and the waves sparkle like gold. If you're game for a little adventure, drive out to the old Cabrillo Lighthouse and hike out to the tide pools by the point. If you’re looking for great surf, Point Loma offers some great breaks that are frequented by locals.
