Named after Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, the first European to set foot on the West Coast of the United States in 1542, Cabrillo National Monument celebrates the spirit of discovery, and protects the rare natural and cultural riches of the San Diego area.

The monument consists of the 160 acres at the southern-most tip of the Point Loma peninsula, which includes more than 660 acres of native habitat in total. Centuries of development in the region have made the remaining habitats at Cabrillo National Monument among the rarest in the world.

Its high level of diversity of plants and animals is in part because it lies at the southern-most extent of some plant and animal ranges, and the northern-most extent of others. It is also an important stopover for birds along the Pacific flyway. The west side of the monument is home to a wide array of marine and coastal habitats including rocky intertidal areas and kelp forests.
