Sunset Cliff’s - San Diego’s Best Kept Secret

Spectacular "sunset views" gave the area its name - Sunset Cliffs Natural Park. A 68 acre resource based park stretching 1 ½ miles beside the Pacific Ocean shoreline on the western edge of Point Loma is one of San Diego County’s phenomenal sites and perhaps San Diego’s best kept secret.

On the ocean side of Point Loma there is an 18 acre “linear park” which follows Sunset Cliffs Boulevard from Adair Street. There are several parking areas that allow for breathtaking ocean views, carved coastal bluffs, arches and sea caves. Flocks of pelicans can be seen along the bluffs and California gray whales can often be found during their annual migration to Baja California, although the park is more than just grand vistas.

The main “Hillside Park” at the Ladera street parking lot is a 50 acre section with designated multiple species conservation area and just south of the lot there is a two-acre native plant garden with over fifty native plant species of cacti, succulents, shrubs and a number of Torrey pine trees that have been added since the restoration effort started in 2005. Now at its peak in April, many of the early flowering plants are in bloom with others that will progressively bloom into the fall.

Take a walk to enjoy their beauty and see the many birds and other small animals that flourish in their natural habitat. One can travel all over the world in search of beauty; this natural park is truly an extraordinary place that shouldn’t be missed.
