Point Loma is technically referenced as The Peninsula. Thus, if you cannot find Point Loma in your real estate search, you should be able to find information under the search term The Peninsula. Not surprisingly, Point Loma is located on a peninsula that offers both beach and bay access and is located in the San Diego, California area. The neighborhood is known for its historic sites, and outdoor recreational opportunities.
