Getting Around Point Loma
Around Point Loma
Just about every part of Point Loma has certain qualities that make the area especially popular with locals. Although it is one of the most expensive areas in San Diego, La Playa is near the end of the peninsula and boasts one of the prettiest walking paths in the city. Other residential areas include Loma Portal and the Wooded Area, which is along the crest of the peninsula. Point Loma has a wide variety of single-family homes and condominiums.
Since part of Point Loma is right on the bay, the seafood here is particularly noteworthy. The freshness can't be beat: many of the local restaurants buy their fish daily right from the fishing boats each morning. There are also several very popular restaurants on Shelter Island, which has a lovely walking path to stroll along after a meal.
You will see spectacular views from many key vantage points in Point Loma, looking south across the bay and Pacific Ocean. On clear days you can see all the way to Tijuana. At the end of the point is the Cabrillo National Monument Park, which maintains the original lighthouse and museum. At the bottom of the park on the ocean side, adults and kids alike have tons of fun exploring the tide pools teeming with a wide variety of sea life. You can also enjoy watching all sorts of ships and boats coming in and going out to sea, including sailboats, commercial ships, and naval vessels.
A Friday night in the neighborhood typically sees residents heading towards Shelter Island for a meal before a walk along the bay. The area also has some very popular music venues, including one that is on Shelter Island. Locals love to pull out their dinghies or kayaks and paddle over and listen to the concerts. This has gone on for many years and the locals frequently try to outdo each other with floating picnics.
A perfect Sunday includes walking along the bay or taking in a Sunday brunch. Evenings can include concerts in the park or going to one of the many musical events sponsored by local churches and the university. The university has a thriving theater scene and Point Loma has several movie theaters and clubs.
