|A Glimpse of the Peninsula|
The peninsula is a seven-mile strip of land that juts into the Pacific Ocean from the north end of the San Diego Bay. Throughout the years, deep-water anchorages at marinas protected seafarers from ominous storms, and the harbor served as an ideal location for yachting, sailing, and sports fishing. The peninsula hosts international sailing competitions and has been the scene for the Americas Cup.
This region was developed by, from, and around the sea. Originally a port and fishing outpost, today the beautiful peninsula has a well-developed commercial base, a liberal arts college (Point Loma Nazarene University), and a community where over 20,000 people reside in quiet and well-maintained neighborhoods.
The military has an important historical presence here with Naval Ocean Systems, Naval Electronics Laboratory Center, an atomic submarine base, an undersea research and development center, SPAWARS, and Naval and Coast Guard rescue facilities. The NTC Trust for Historic Preservation offers organized tours of its unique collection of military artifacts representing the 75-year history of the former Naval Training Center.
Recreational resources are abundant on the peninsula, including the Cabrillo National Monument, Shelter Island, Sunset Cliffs, and the Point Loma Lighthouse. Visitors are charmed by the peninsula’s eclectic shops, seaside restaurants, art galleries, and romantic harbor atmosphere.
Tourists and residents alike flock to the rocky and sandy beaches of Sunset Cliffs to explore the depths of the ocean or to enjoy the shoreline. The peninsula is rich in natural beauty, cultural and business activities, and in the people who are proud to call it home.
