Point Loma

    Point Loma is a peninsula surrounded by water. The smell of the sea permeates the air in Point Loma. Blue-green marinas dot the shoreline on the bayside of the peninsula offering a full range of services for yachts, sailboats, and fishing vessels. Point Loma has some of the city's oldest and most interesting homes. It is one of the wealthiest areas of the county and its home to many of the "old money" families of San Diego. Its beautiful tree-shaded streets are lined with well-manicured homes of every architectural persuasion, but it probably has more of the popular Spanish-style architecture than any other community in the county.
