We here at Hidden San Diego follow the 'Leave no Trace' mantra, meaning whatever you bring with you comes back with you. If you see trash on a trail, please do your part to help remove it.

About Sunset Cliffs Caves, Cove & Ravines
Sunset Cliffs has some of the most picturesque coastlines in all of San Diego. People flock to this area to marvel at the rugged cliffs, sea caves and all-around beauty.
Although it is extremely enjoyable from above, the real adventures begin from below! Please note that the tide greatly determines if you can get into the sea caves. You cannot access them during high tide.
There are several ways to get below: one is by stairs, one is by rope and a a few others are through ravines. All offer a ton of fun and it’s very much a choose your own adventure!
Many of the cool Sunset Cliffs caves cannot be reached unless it’s super low tide. There is no way in them otherwise unless you swim and that’s obviously not safe.
I recommend going on a low tide day and just walking along the shore. There are many caves to explore, including a couple quite large ones. The best cave here, Rum Runners Cave, I have finally explored and given it its own page!
