Welcome to Point Loma

Gorgeous scenery and great amenities on a rugged peninsula
 
Point Loma is a gorgeous community on a rugged peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and San Diego Bay. In 1542, Portuguese explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo became the first European to set foot on Californian soil at Point Loma. Point Loma is consequently known as the place where California began. Cabrillo’s arrival is commemorated with the Cabrillo National Monument at the southern tip of the peninsula. Point Loma features a beautiful, hilly coastal landscape with beaches, protected tide pools, and boating harbors. Point Loma has many excellent restaurants and one of the United States’ largest naval bases.
 
Homes in Point Loma are just as spectacular as the peninsula’s scenery. Housing options include historic mansions perched on hilltops and cliffs, with mesmerizing views over the ocean and the bay. There are also stylish contemporary condo developments, including a converted former naval training center at Liberty Station.
