Point Loma, a broad peninsula located in San Diego, California, reaches out to the Pacific Ocean on one side and San Diego Bay on the other. The coastal side features gorgeous scenery, rocky outcroppings, and a relaxing beach— Ocean Beach— above its northern end; the eastern side offers shops and great city views. Stay in one of the Point Loma motels, where you can relax and enjoy the salty ocean breeze.
Visiting Point Loma
Once you touch down at San Diego International Airport (SAN), you'll need to take a combination of three buses to reach Point Loma, although it's only 6 miles away. Get on the 923 in front of either Terminal 1 or 2, and ride to the intersection of Nimitz Boulevard and Rosecrans Street. Here, switch to the 28 line, ride three stops south, and get on the 84, which will take you to the gate leading into the peninsula's tip. For a quicker transit experience, take a cab (or a water taxi!), or reserve one of the vehicles at the rental car center. Settle in at one of the Point Loma hotels, and head down to Cabrillo National Monument, which honors Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, the first European explorer to reach the West Coast back in 1542. Cabrillo is also a great place for tide-pooling, with plenty of ways to explore these fascinating mini-ecosystems. Next, hop into Point Loma rental cars, and drive east into the city to get up close and personal with animals at the San Diego Zoo. Need a place to crash after a busy day taking selfies with the pandas? Travelocity will help you get set up in a great San Diego CA hotel at the lowest prices around.
