Climbing out of his boat and onto shore in 1542, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo stepped into history as the first European to set foot on what is now the West Coast of the United States. In addition to telling the story of 16th century exploration, the park is home to a wealth of cultural and natural resources. Join us and embark on your own Voyage of Discovery.

Fun place to go look around. Especially if you don't live near the coast.

Great place to go, and see sights normally you don't.

We went at low tide @ 11:11am on Sun 10/23/16 to get into some of the caves. The waves were so large & strong that there was no way to get to the caves. What we, could see from the cliffs was just beautiful.

best ten bucks you will ever spend. absolutely stunning scenery. the tidepools are not to be missed

Short trail but great views. If you want to get a little exercise at Cabrillo it's nice.

Outstanding views but keep in mind it's a $10 entry fee

Gravel trail in Cabrillo National Monument that starts near the lighthouse. No beach access from the trail.

Very scenic with a panoramic view. Very easy to walk and fast. It costs $10 to get in but it's worth the trip.

Always have fun exploring here!

To get to the down side is an exciting adventure, you get in contact with wonders of nature, nice views, we were able to watch some sea lions playing around, fun for families. Just loved it.

Breathtaking views, very good exercise, cool museum.

Awesome. Weather was beautiful and the tide pools were amazing.

If you want a short and seabreezy "hike" with amazing views of the San Diego harbor, THIS is your "hike". It's more of a walk, really, just steep in parts, but the path is broad and well maintained. It's very open and literally the coolest hike in San Diego. (It's mostly in the shade and cooled by the ocean air.)
It's ten bucks to get into the park, but twenty for the pass which is totally worth it. I'm guessing the entrance fee keeps the crowds down, even on holiday weekends.

Great views, but it's a pretty short one. Recommend doing it twice.
