Killer Ocean Views
Sunset Cliffs Natural Park14
Why locals love it
Whether they're fishing, surfing, hiking or meditating to the sounds of the crashing waves you'll always find a local or two taking in the tranquil energy of Sunset Cliffs. Come at the right time and you might even find some of our underwater residents out to play.
Why you should visit it
Unlike much of San Diego's coastline, Sunset Cliffs isn't all sandy beaches and lifeguard towers. Here, tucked away in the heart of Ocean Beach, you'll find staggering cliffs, tide pools brimming with ocean life and a quiet serenity that will make you completely forget you're in the heart of a major city.
Make sure to check when low tide is the day you visit so you get the chance to see San Diego's sea life up close in the tide pools.
