This is a very nice lighthouse and view of the Pac Ocean. It also has a extremely large Veterans Cemetery that has one of the best views of downtown SD around. Very quiet and serene place to visit early morning

When our travels start in San diego then we always visit point loma and Cabrillo national monument. Then we always walk the path around old point loma lighthouse. Such beautifull sights!

A must see when visiting Cabrillo National Monument. A short walk from the Information Center. You can goo inside the lighthouse and see where the keeper lived and alongside it there is the history of the lighthouse and keepers.
