At the tip of Point Loma, just a few miles southwest of downtown San Diego’s cityscape, Cabrillo National Monument memorializes the first European explorer to navigate the Californian coast. There’s more to this attraction than just a traditional statue – you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the city, Coronado and Mexico, a scenic walking path and lively tide pools.
