Mount Soledad, the highest peak on the coast of San Diego, is a great place to get an unobstructed view of San Diego (especially when the sun is setting).
With an almost uninterrupted 360 view, you can see all the way north to Dana Point, all the way south to Mexico, and if you look east, you can see the mountains in East County, San Diego. The top of Mount Soledad is capped by a large concrete cross to memorialize the losses suffered in the Korean War. Surrounding the monument are plenty of benches, and an expansive grass lawn perfect for picnics!
Fun Fact: Mount Soledad is easily visible from our kayak tours in the cove, and we often use Mt. Soledad as a unit of measurement! Our underwater canyon in the La Jolla Ecological Reserve is about double the height of Mt Soledad, if you flipped it and stacked them upside down.
