Point Loma is located west of downtown San Diego, adjacent to Harbor Island and Shelter Island – all of which offer great restaurants and a variety of accommodations. Point Loma is the name of the town and the peninsula on which it sits, forming one of the sides of the San Diego Harbor. The picturesque marinas in this area are the departure points for sportfishing excusions, whale watching tours and harbor cruises.
Point Loma encompasses at least five distinct districts, including the surf town of Ocean Beach. In this area, you can find beautiful mansions, stunning vistas at Sunset Cliffs, and the waterfront urban village of Liberty Station (including hotels, restaurants, shops, a waterfront park, the historic Sail Ho Golf Course and the NTC Promenade.) Liberty Station is also home to over 48 museums, galleries, artist and design studios, dance companies and other organizations that showcase San Diego’s creative community.
Point Loma is known locally as an excellent spot for tide pooling, where low tide brings a magnificent reveal of the underwater reef, exposing flowery anemones, crabs and a myriad of other sea creatures to the delight of visitors and locals who frequent these pools. And don’t miss a trip to the Point Loma Lighthouse, located at the Cabrillo National Monument, for a glimpse of San Diego’s nautical history and for stunning views of the bay and downtown skyline.
