This parking lot is the largest Ocean Beach has to offer. It's a bit tricky to find though. Coming from Newport Avenue head North along Abott until you reach Voltaire Avenue where you will go West across West Point Loma Blvd. entering the lot. This is the only entrance. You will exit at the other end of the lot (south from the entrance).
