“Best bargain for fabulous views...”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

You only pay entry fee for your car. Views are incredible, both of N Island, Coronado, downtown SD, and on the W side of Pt Loma, the ocean. If you go at the right time, you will see whales, dolphins. The visitor center has great views outside, many publications and souveniers inside. It is worth the hike uphill to see the lighthouse inside, and the museum next door to it.

“Nice to visit, but not a lot to do”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

The lighthouse, itself, only takes about 10 minutes to see. You get to climb up inside of it and see the rooms where the lighthouse attendants lived and there are signs that tell you interesting information about the life they lived there. Unfortunately, you don't get to go all the way up to where the lamp is, but you can look at it from just below. The lighthouse is located in Cabrillo National Monument, which is nice to visit. Upon entering, you will pay about $5 per car load and then everything inside is free, including visiting the lighthouse. Visiting all of the museums at Cabrillo National Monument can easily occupy several hours and is worth visiting.

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

All it could possibly be. A part of our history? Very clean. The 5.00 fee is worth it.

“Wonderful View”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

Even on a cloudy day you can see forever. This is a great way to see the ocean, skyline and Coronado Island. Nice way to spend a few hours while in San Diego.
