Tips from locals
View the city of San Diego on one side of the hill and the ocean on the other side. You can see whales migrating in the ocean. There are tide pools to discoveer on the ocean side. View the miltary cemetary.
Excellent place with awesome views. I think its the best place in San Diego for views. National Parks pass is free to enter $10 per vehicle
Cabrillo National Monument is at the southern tip of the Point Loma Peninsula in San Diego, California, United States. It commemorates the landing of Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo at San Diego Bay on September 28, 1542. Entry is free with National Parks Annual Pass.
This is a great way to see a wonderful historic national monument and the old Point Loma lighthouse. The scenery is absolutely stunning but the hills can be a little challenging for people who have a hard time walking. There is a charge to get in.

“If you visit in the month of October children can sometimes go in for free with an adult paid ticket. Check their website to see if they are still offering this major discount. If you are looking to save yourselves a few bucks on food you can pack a lunch and take inside so you don't pay for overpriced meals and buy more souvenirs :)”
