WELCOME TO POINT LOMA
Point Loma is a four-mile peninsula that juts into the ocean east of San Diego, forming the boundary between the San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Covered in hills, homes in Point Loma enjoy incredible views of the San Diego skyline in one direction and the Pacific Ocean extending to the horizon in the other. Point Loma is known as the place “where California began,” as Portuguese explorer Juan Rodrigues Cabrillo became the first European to set foot in modern-day California when he arrived here in 1542.
Surrounded by water, the beautiful scenery is matched by the attractiveness of its properties. Lavish hilltop residences enjoy magnificent views, while the Point Loma real estate mix also includes townhomes, timeshares, and condominiums. Point Loma is comprised of a variety of distinct neighborhoods, with the grand houses within Roseville and Wooded Area typically considered the most desirable.
