Aptly named, Sunset Cliffs Natural Park features 2.4 km (1.5 mi) of sandstone cliffs in hues that mirror a golden sunset along the Pacific Ocean. For some of the best sights, take the coastal trail along the boulevard to reach rocky hills, sandy arches, and coves. At the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Ladera Street, you can take the stairs down to the beach during low tide. The 28 hectares (68 acres) park connects with Point Loma Reserve, a protected coastal habitat.

  • Beauty views of the water. Absolutely must visit it when the name suggests: sunset. Can't beat this view.

  • Sunset cliffs is a beautiful place to catch sunset on a clear day in San Diego. Always fun to bring a picnic and blanket to hang out and have a bite while watching the sun go down.

  • Pleasant and Picturesque walk from the Sunset Cliff trail point down to the beach. Get down the stairs to have a swim. Come back up, grab a beer and walk down to the Sunset park where you see people using ropes to get down which was quite fun. Lay down to watch the beautiful sunset. Had an amazing sunset time. Must visit if in SD!
  • Beautiful place to watch the sunset. Cliffs are unstable, so be careful walking around. There are a few benches around to sit and watch the sunset. Gets busy quickly so you may want to arrive about an hour before sunset. You will need to walk about a mile from where you park to see the best views.
