Stopped by the Del Mar beach after a nearby brunch. Great beach not real crowded and very clean. Great for nice walk along the shoreline.

Very clean and peaceful. Liked that no dogs were on beach and not many kids. Very quiet. I have dogs but leave them at home when I travel.

Lots of sand, pretty homes, and restaurants. The air is good, there are plenty of lifeguards, so what else do you need.

We visited for an afternoon while in San Diego. It's about a 30 min trip North. Very nice, clean beach. Too chilly in April but we hung out with the kids, walked the beach, people watched, and tossed the football around on their grassy area....More
