    Great views of San Diego and the Bay. On a clear day you can see the Coronado Islands. If your lucky you may even see a big Navy ship entering or leaving the harbor.

    Even on a sunny day, temperatures here can be cool, so bring a jacket; and pack a lunch -- the site has great picnicking spots but no food facilities. You should plan on a minimum of 90 minutes here.

    Make sure you get to the tide pools before 3 to be safe. The sign says 4:30, but the Rangers can be very unfriendly and close the gate early.
