Best Places to Watch the Sunset in San Diego

photo: Coronado Beach by @famdiego

We're so lucky to live along the West Coast that allows us to catch some spectacular sunsets over the ocean! This has been one of our favorite ways to get out of the house, get some fresh air and make some great memories together watching the sun go down. Lately, we've been making this at least a monthly family date night to pick up some takeout from a nearby restaurant to enjoy a Sunset Dinner together. 🥡 🌅 💛

Here's a list curated by me, along with all of my @famdiego friends' replies from an Instagram poll. I'll be regularly adding details to this list so check back often and click on the locations to find out everything you need to know before you go. 👍

About Us

I'm a SAHM of 2 boys, but we rarely "stay at home". They have sooo much energy that we HAVE to get outside to burn it off. Everyday is an adventure; whether we find new places, go back to our favorites or even just a trip to Costco!
