The Catamaran Hotel - 3999 Mission Blvd, San Diego, CA 92109
For a spot to catch a Sunset or watch the fireworks the best family Beach Bar is the Catamaran. It does have a flair for the islands and there are colorful fish and birds everywhere.
The Hotel del Coronado - 1500 Orange Ave, Coronado, CA 92118
The Hotel Del is a historic beachfront hotel in the city of Coronado, just across the San Diego Bay from San Diego, California. It is one of the few surviving examples of an American architectural genre: the wooden Victorian beach resort. It is the second largest wooden structure in the United States (after the Tillamook Air Museum in Tillamook, Oregon) and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977 and a California Historical Landmark in 1970.
During the winter holiday season you can actually ice skate while the sun sets!
Sunset Cliffs - Ocean Beach
A drive along sunset cliffs at any time of day is breathtaking but add a sunset and your heart will jump around. There are spots to pull over and get out of the car (or DD Limo, wink wink) along the route. Warning: Be careful walking on the cliffs as there are no guard rails and tourists have fallen to their deaths taking pictures. Go up the hill to Catalina Blvd (Point Loma) and you will have a beautiful view of the sunset reflecting off the glass-windowed-buildings that are the Downtown San Diego Skyline.
