Cabrillo National Monument and Reservation – The Most Scenic Spot in Southern California

When it comes to amazing scenery and places to visit in Southern California, nothing beats Cabrillo National Monument in Point Loma San Diego.

Cabrillo National Monument extends out as a peninsula with San Diego bay to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. The park offers amazing tidal pools, hiking trails with great views, a movie theater which plays movies on whale migrations, whale watching, a gift shop and a historical lighthouse and historical buildings set to the original time period of the early 1900’s.

Cabrillo is also one of the only places where you will find amazing coastal views with cliffs and hillsides free of homes and development.

Since the Cabrillo Monument sits about 500 feet above sea level, the views are magnificent of Downtown San Diego and Coronado.

It is by far one of the best places to bring a family or friends in San Diego and Southern California and rated by SoCal Beaches Magazine as the #1 Scenic Spot in Southern California.
