Exploring the Secret Sea Caves

Cabrillo National Monument - Search Nearby - Added by Last Adventurer

Solitude. Great views. Amazing photography.

From the park entrance, follow the park road down to the tide pools parking area. From the parking area, follow the trail down to the cliffs, and head north. If it is high tide, this route will be inaccessible, so be sure that you are visiting this area at low tide. Follow the cliff as it wraps around toward the East, and then across a beach to the cave entrance. The entrance is a narrow slit in the sandstone rock. From there, head into the cave and enjoy the solitude and serenity present inside.

Stormy Day

Went out on a bit of a stormy day but we lucked out and only hit a slight drizzle walking in. There were still a lot of people in the tide pools but only a handful in the cave itself. Still it was beautiful. The only thing is we had to trek it across a field of sea kelp on the last inlet bring shoes you don't mind mucking up

Low-tide Sunset

If you time it right, with a low tide in the evening, this can be a great place for amazing downtown SD views
