- Amazing sunset views over the Pacific
- Great spot to watch the surf
- Accessible parking
- Close proximity to town
Sunset Cliffs Natural Park area is a 68-acre park on the western edge of Point Loma. The cliffs overlook the Pacific, creating a great spot to take in the sunset. If you head to the parking lot off of Sunset Cliffs, you can get a great view from Pappy's Point. Try to get there a bit before the sunset if you want to snag a spot in the parking lot. There is also additional parking further south in the Natural Park if this lot is overcrowded.
If you're taking a special someone there for the sunset, head to the The Joint before or after to grab a bite and a drink or two.

I did not visit sunset cliffs at the best time of year, but it was a really neat spot! Great spot for photos and fun for family's if you scramble down closer to the water, you can find crabs, urchins, and small fish in the tide pools. I'm hoping to visit again in September.
There are plenty of places to park and enjoy the sunset. Just bring your camera, some snacks and find a little place all to yourself. The farther in you go (towards the campus) the more secluded it will be...hopefully

The best time to go to Fonts point is right before the sun sets. It is located in the desert, so be sure to dress warmly and bring a blanket or two.
