San Diego


California

Cabrillo National Monument

Commemorating the arrival of Portuguese explorer Juan Rodriquez Cabrillo ( sailing for Spain) on the coast of California in 1542, Cabrillo National Monument and the Old Point Loma Lighthouse provide a spectacular panoramic view of San Diego’s harbor and coastline, as well an excellent vantage point for observing the California gray whale during migration season.

Cabrillo National Park also offers a large, rocky shoreline of tidepools, the windows to the magnificent Pacific Ocean.
Here, families can see flowery anemones, scampering shore crabs, elusive octopus, spongy deadman’s fingers and many other creatures of the sea. The best time to visit the tidepools is during winter and spring low tides.
