Surfing, Fishing & Sunsets: There are no defined beaches on Point Loma making swimming opportunities scarce but it is a popular destination for skilled surfers to catch some great breaks, sunset viewing and the occasional small wedding. South of Sunset Cliffs is Osprey Point. There’s good fishing off the rocks here, and a textured retaining wall where rock climbers have been known to train. South of Osprey Point is Luscomb’s, a surf break in the middle of a small bay with a rock peak near the shore. “Garbage Reef” is where the road ends on Ladera Street. Venture past Ladera and you’ll find the road into Sunset Cliffs Natural Park a 68-acre resource-based park, where you’ll find more quality surf spots at AB’s and New Break. Beyond the southern limits of the park, the coast is rough and only accessible by boat. Die-hard surfers with boats head all the way to the tip, to the winter break called Dolphin Tanks or the summer break called Ralph’s. For the land-lovers we recommend the breathtaking sunsets and sunrises of Sunset Cliffs. It is strongly advised that you obey all signage and warnings in and around this area if you want to get out of your car for a closer look. The Sunset Cliffs are known for their constant erosion and collapsing. Unfortunately, they are also known for many injuries and even deaths of locals and tourists so it is strongly advised to take extra precautions when on or near the Sunset Cliffs.
