Explore Californian history in Point Loma

Point Loma is the hook nose of San Diego. It pokes out into the Pacific Ocean with its sheer-cut cliffs and palm-lined fields, heralding the first place European explorers ever set foot on Californian soil. Point Loma vacation rentals dot the coastal walks of Ocean Beach, offering a vacation of sunbathing, pier walking, and surfing. Others have handsome marina views over La Playa – perfect for the budding sailors. Others lurk closer to the Cabrillo National Monument, offering a base for a journey into the Golden State's long history.

A whirlwind of San Diego culture in Point Loma

Laid back South Californian living dominates in Point Loma. Surfers still ride the waves where Duke Kahanamoku once carved. Dog walkers stroll along the palm-shaded boulevards. Yoga teachers pull downward dogs while the salt spray of the Pacific rolls in. Elsewhere, and whale watchers stand wide-eyed on the lookouts, waiting for a sighting of a hulking gray in the bay. History guides unravel the past of European explorers. And there are homey little boutique craft stalls ringing the marinas.

Point Loma is where California's modern history begins

If there's one sight on Point Loma that everyone has to see, it's surely the Cabrillo National Monument. This marks the point where the adventuring conquistador Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo first hit land as he explored the West Coast back in the 1540s. There are also military exhibitions there to showcase the unique naval past of the point. There's the whitewashed Old Point Loma Lighthouse, dating back to the middle of the 19th century. And the views across to San Diego proper are ones to really take the breath away.

Point Loma vacation rentals are for all year round

Continuous surf swells that remain reliable all year, regular daytime temperatures that sit up in the 70s, and countless hours of sunshine even throughout the winter all adds up to make Point Loma a real timeless destination. That said, there are some things to bear in mind. For starters, you could consider coming in September if you're eager to hit the San Diego theme parks without the huge vacationer crowds. Or, you could think about staying in the winter months between December and March to catch the whale migration season in full swing.

Point Loma is a wonderland of coastal treats

When it comes to showcasing the South Californian coast, Point Loma is a doozy. There are rock pools, rugged and washed by the ocean, hosting curious marine life and shellfish. There are whale watching outposts from which to survey the wider ocean. There are sunsets and sunrises to die for from the Cabrillo National Monument. And there are long, sandy beaches, where waves roll in from morning to night, palms sway on the clifftops, and the Pacific offers somewhere to swim and surf. Expect all that and more, right on the doorstep of Point Loma vacation rentals.
