For a family vacation with a toddler, Del Mar City Beach seems like an ideal destination. It has convenient parking, multiple restaurants nearby (everybody needs to "refuel"), and the beach itself is clean and comfortable -- yes, I am talking about that fine sand. There...More

Beautiful views. Lots of surfers, swimmers and sunbathers. There is a park at the entry of the beach with nice grassy areas and places to BBQ and picnic.

I love running on this beach, doing an out and back from Solana Beach/Dog Beach towards Torrey Pines and back. Check a tides timetable before you head out, depending on which end you start at.

This beach is wide and flat and perfect for lazying around during the day, boogie boarding, running / walking, watching the sunset. I appreciate there's a lifeguard station nearby, for safety, and for bathrooms. The only downside is - there appears to be some confusion...More

Great Beach along the Pacific Ocean. You cannot really find anything prettier then Del Mar California itself. You have to walk along the shore of the Pacific Ocean right after high tide, sea shelling is the best!

We went for a walk on the Del Mar Beach on a sunny, windy day. We were able to enjoy the sand, surf and views of the Pacific Ocean. There were a few people on the beach, but not overly crowded. It might be a...More
