San Diego Beaches

Blacks Beach
Black Beach is a two mile long, sandy strip located at the base of impressive cliffs up to 300 feet high. It is officially known as Torrey Pines City Beach and Torrey Pines State Beach and are together owned by the City of San Diego and the State of California. There is a glider port atop the cliff overlooking the beach where hangliders, paragliders and remote controlled gliders can frequently be seen soaring, its northern parts where clothing is optional. Water activity is basically unregulated, and particularly the southern end of the beach is very popular among the surfers.

La Jolla Shores
La Jolla Shores is a sandy beach around one mile long, side by side to a residential area. In summer, waves at this beach are normally the most gentle of all San Diego beaches, though rip currents may yet be potent at times, for this cause, majority of novice scuba classes are held at La Jolla Shores. Kellogg Park, a grassy area, is established behind the main lifeguard station and is ideal for picnicking. A wide cement boardwalk parallels a part of the beach between the park and the sand.

La Jolla Cove
La Jolla Cove is a very little beach, tucked between side by side of sandstone cliffs. Owed to its extraordinary beauty, La Jolla Cove is one of the most photographed beaches in Southern California. It is located within a short walk of the commercial area of the community of La Jolla, but retains a quality "all its own."

Children's Pool
The Children's Pool, also called like the Casa, is a small beach partially protected by a seawall. This is a very beautiful beach with a panoramic view.

Windansea Beach
Windansea Beach's the rocky shore is maybe best known for its attractive scenery and surf breaks created by underwater reefs. Sandstone rocks act like partitions along the beach offering a secret atmosphere for sunbathing.

Pacific Beach
This is the beach for all kind of sport. During the summer, Pacific Beach is ever crammed with persons sunbathing, listening to music, picnicking, playing volleyball, competing in athletic events and even getting married. The beach has areas reserved for swimming and surfing. Parallel to the entire beach is a boardwalk where you can rollerblade, ride your bike, go jogging etc.

Mission Beach
Mission Beach is the center of a continuous stretch of beach named The Strand, which extends over two miles, beginning at the Mission Bay channel entry and closing at the north end of Pacific Beach. The Strand is the most famous beach area in the City of San Diego and draws large crowds in summer.

Ocean Beach
Ocean Beach is established in the community of Ocean Beach, just south of the Mission Bay channel entry. This is a wide beach around one mile long. A volleyball area can be found near the north end of the beach.
