Visiting the Point Loma Tide Pools in Cabrillo National Monument, San Diego
In this video we are visiting the Point Loma Tide Pools. This is the first turn off after entering Cabrillo National Monument in San Diego. The sign might say "parking lot full", but people are coming and going all day so it's easy to find a spot when someone leaves. The best time to visit the tide pools is during the fall and winter months, when they have great low tides during park hours. During spring and summer on Point Loma, the tide is usually covering the tide pools when the park is open. The tide pools were not fully exposed during our visit- but it was beautiful!
