    Go farther south past the pier and take the stairs down for awesome views along the rocks or climb down the cliff to a sick secluded beach when the tide is low.

    Nicest place to watch sunset? Eh... But if you go down the staircase when the tide is high late at night you can watch the waves crash, awesome to watch and relaxing to listen to.

    Go to the last park entrance up on the hill to the right, then use the ropes for a small repel down to the beach. This area is the best of Sunset Cliffs.

    Great trails next to lovey houses. So many come here to surf. We even found someone with a lemonade stand!

    Justin McLachlan, author of Time Up, here. I picked this as a surfing spot for the characters in my story, but it's (as the name implies) a great place to watch the sunset. Bring a blanket or chair.

    A great place on Southern California's San Diego Coast to rage a bowl, smoke a joint, blaze a blunt or rip a dab while taking in nature at its finest!

    Although it's "prohibited" you should definitely go cliff diving. It gets your adrenaline going and you'll be glad you did. I love it here!

    Don't leave right after the sunset. Many times the sky's even more amazing afterwards. Up to 45 minutes afterwards. And less traffic heading out.

    In Justin McLachlan's upcoming novel, Time Up, this is where our hero first meets the villan. Take a hike around the cliffs at sunset for the best views anywhere in San Diego.

    The air is clear. The area is clean. You can just stand there and listen to the sound of the ocean. Beautiful scenery.

    Sun, whether shining or setting, is hardly a necessary pre-requisite for sentiments such as stunning, or spectacular. That's on you, playa.
