We loved the views, sooo pretty!! Best advice is to get there early for the sunset. We got there about 45 mins before sunset and it was hard to find a place to park. But this place is worth a visit and it’s free!!

There's a reason that we saw three different parties taking wedding/engagement photos at this place the evening we were there. It's just a spectacular place to see a sunset. The clouds did not completely cooperate so that we could see the sun down onto the horizon but such is nature....it does what it wants. There were lots of people around but there's a pretty large area to hang out so that everyone can still have some space to themselves. A great calm way to end yet another beautiful San Diego day.

This was a short walk from my mother in laws house on the hill. I visited nightly for spectacular sunsets. It can be crowded and the smell of weed is strong, but no one bothers you and it is a great experience.

Have you ever seen movies with a spectacular sunsets on a Clif? Or listen to to songs about California beaches with amazing sunset? Probably these movies or songs were filmed or written about Sunset Clif Natural Park in San Diego, California. Sunset Clif Epitomizes California beaches and sunset views. This is what California is all about, sunsets and beaches. Sunset Clif Natural Park is a 3 miles of cliffs stretching south from the Ocean Beach pier to the tip of Point Loma, forming the jagged side of the peninsula that cradles San Diego Harbor. Far below them, waves crash against the rocks, transforming eroded surfaces into rivulets and miniature waterfalls. Beyond the shoreline, the sea wrinkles out to a vast horizon, reflecting the most spectacular sunsets in the county. We have been coming to San Diego many times but never had a chance to visit this place. Oh Boy! We have been missing out. The sunset view here are the best in California. No wonder there are so many people just park their cars or SUVs and open their car doors or the hatches to watch the sunset while sipping on a cup of hot coffee. What a life! The Park also has a walking path although many parts of the walkway have been eroded so be careful walking around here. The best time to get here to see the sunset during winter time is around 3:30 and walk the whole path. Then get yourself situated at the Clif at Pappy's point. Search on map to get exact location. To see the open Ceiling Cave, you have to get the the time table of low tide info from the Tide Surf forecast site. You don't want to stuck down there with the high tides. Getting there is easy. You begin by heading to the Sunset Cliffs Blvd in Point Loma. Park between Hill Street and Monaco Street. We really enjoyed our times here. The sunset views were unforgettable.
