On the western side of Point Loma lies the rocky inter-tidal zone, a window into the ocean ecosystem that lies along of San Diego’s coast. The Point Loma tide pools are one of the great natural wonders of the San Diego area and never fail to captivate the interest of kids and visitors.

The central feature of Cabrillo National Monument atop the Point Loma Peninsula is the Old Point Loma Lighthouse, which was erected by the U.S. Government in 1855.
