Del Mar Beaches
Del Mar is a small city thirty minutes north of La Jolla, well known for its upscale downtown area and beautiful coastline. The Del Mar beaches are popular among surfers and swimmers, and are spread out along a two-mile strip on the coastline. North “Dog” Beach is one of San Diego’s only Dog Beaches (the other being in Ocean Beach), while Del Mar City Beach is the area’s main beach for swimming and surfing. All of Del Mar’s beaches and parks are very family-friendly, and the area is so accessible it makes a great day trip from anywhere in San Diego.
