Catch a Sunset at Sunset Cliffs

Added by Joe Bothe

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.
