Sunset Cliffs Natural Park - Review
The Sunset cliffs Natural Park is a wonderful green area to explore in San Diego. This coastal place is an absolutely wonderful retreat for the nature lover. You will be able to observe the very unique geographical and natural wealth of San Diego in this amazing place.
The massive rocks and the scrubby vegetation make for a picturesque day or evening at this serene place. There is an amazing array of water birds like cormorants and pelicans as well as forest birds like hawks and finches that inhabit the park. Besides this several rare reptiles can also be found here. Flowering plants dotting the park will surprise you with their wild beauty.
The sandstone cliffs of Point Loma that dot the area are certainly a beautiful sight to see. A trip to this place is a must if you are looking for a quiet and gorgeous place to see.

Sunset Cliffs Natural Park, San Diego Reviews
Don’t give very many 5 star rankings, but wow. If you’re not from the area, make sure to go. If you are from the area, God says “you’re welcome!” Has there ever been a bad sunset here? Bring a chair or a blanket, there’s free parking around, and enjoy the view. While the waves crash against the rocks below, you’re going to witness a spectacle as the sun absolutely lights up everything around. How beautiful is it? After standing there for 5 minutes, there was a marriage proposal right behind me. While I feel bad for probably ruining their pictures, I get his choice of setting. Coming back
This is an amazing place and a little adventure. Lots of people stay on top of the cliffs and take in the view, but some people go down to the beach. The beach is mostly about the adventure of getting there and being among the great scenery. If you’re just looking for a day at the beach, look elsewhere. There are lots of sand fleas and the water tends to be rough and rocky. We wanted an adventure, so we went down to the beach and loved it. It looks like the area is under construction right now, so there is no easy way to get down to the beach. You’ll have to brave a cliff-side path that is pretty steep in some parts or you can take the (closed) staircase and walk across some big rocks. But be mindful of the tide. If you go down for sunset, you’ll have to climb the cliff back up because you won’t be able to get from the beach to the stairs. It all depends on your proclivity for adventure and mild risk. I wouldn’t recommend it for kids necessarily, at least not by yourself. You’ll likely need help. Also, the restrooms are at the top of the cliffs.
Beautiful place to watch the sunset and go to the beach right before the sun sets. It was nice to walk up and down the cliffs. Highly recommend if in San Diego! Free parking is available if you can find it. We got there around 7 PM on a Wednesday and had no trouble finding parking.
Great place to watch the Sunset on the Pacific Ocean. We arrived 20 minutes before sunset, parked, and whipped out the camera and went to town. We stayed here for about an hour and got some great pictures. I don't think it would be possible to not like this place. I definitely recommend checking this place out particularly if you are in town visiting like we were.
slightly too many people here, but they are here because it's a real cool place. Can't blame them. Wish there was easier access from Point Loma University
