The weather here in paradise is practically perfect year-round, the sports community is a rocking one, and the nightlife and restaurant scene is unlike any other, but we would we crazy if we thought that any of the aforementioned items were the main reason you’re thinking about a California vacation! San Diego beaches are among the most beautiful and tranquil of all the beaches in the world, attracting thousands of tourists annually, and we can’t blame you for wanting to visit; we can’t imagine living anywhere else, so the appeal is obvious! 17 miles of coastline offers the opportunity for visiting an extensive array of beaches, and the nine lifeguard stations means your safety is our utmost concern!
Featuring one of the nine lifeguard stations, Black’s Beach has a glider port that overlooks it, offering a little extra something beautiful to look at. The cliffs surrounding the beach, however, make it difficult to reach, so please be careful. Surfing is allowed here.
Popular amongst scuba-divers, Children’s Pool Beach also has a permanent lifeguard station and is a great place to view seals in their natural habitat, but is closed from December through May—this is the seal pupping season.
La Jolla Cove
Small and stunning, La Jolla Cove is where you go when you want to take pictures and is a popular swimming spot as well. A permanent lifeguard station makes its home here as well.
La Jolla Shores
Gentle waves make this scenic spot great for activities of all sorts, including scuba classes. This is another of the nine beaches with a permanent lifeguard station.
Home to Belmont Park, a Coney Island style amusement park with a California twist, Mission Beach draws crowds of tourists and locals every year. The permanent lifeguard station ensures your safety here, too.
North Pacific Beach
Tourmaline Surfing Park, located at the north end of North Pacific Beach, offers public parking, showers, restrooms, and the opportunity to surf, kiteboard, or sailboard. There is no lifeguard station here.
This pet friendly beach means you can bring the four legged members of your family, but please be sure to clean up after them. This is one of the beaches you can fish from the pier without a license and is also a beach with a permanent lifeguard station.
Popular year-round and home to a permanent lifeguard station, Pacific Beach is one of our favorites, but it can be crowded.
South Mission Beach
If beach volleyball is your sport, this is the place to go!
No lifeguard station here, but if you’re looking for a private and scenic place to rest, relax, and sunbathe, look no further; Windansea Beach is the spot for you!
