Cabrillo National Park is one of San Diego’s most beautiful and iconic parks.
A short walk leads to the Old Point Loma Lighthouse. This picturesque structure is restored to its 1880’s appearance and presents life as it was for the light keepers and their families.
Cabrillo National Monument is found in Point Loma, and it’s a fantastic venue to enjoy the incredible ocean views, breathtaking views of the city and hiking trails that leave you feeling completely removed from the city.
The park offers a view of San Diego’s harbor and skyline, as well as Coronado and Naval Air Station North Island. On clear days, a wide expanse of the Pacific Ocean, Tijuana, and Mexico’s Coronado Islands are also visible.
While there you can find the Cabrillo National Monument
The monument commemorates the landing of Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo at San Diego Bay on September 28, 1542.
Each year the park holds “The annual Cabrillo Festival Open House” which is held on a Sunday each October. It commemorates Cabrillo with a reenactment of his landing at Ballast Point, in San Diego Bay.
Take in the wide diversity of plant life as the park is the northernmost limit for some species while also the southernmost limit for others. See whales, dolphins, tarantulas, slugs, sea lions, and gray foxes as you explore the over 660 acres of the park.
Watch over 200 species of birds fly through the park, then watch the octopus and hermit crabs play in the tide. Cabrillo National Monument will never cease to amaze you.
