Here is our take on the best beach in San Diego. Pacific Beach, Ocean Beach and Mission Beach complete the coastline around San Diego. Often however the locals will tell you to go further north to Carlsbad.
Coronado Island and Torrey Pines State Beach to escape the college students. Also try Imperial and Black's Beaches.
The pier in Imperial Beach, Southern California. South of San Diego, very close to the Mexican border.
This is one of the top beaches with locals. Always almost deserted apart from a few naturalists. You can access from La Jolla and Del Mar (Torrey Pines) from the beach. You can explore the cliffs but there is not any obligation to nude surf.

can access the pier and there are activities for children with a big
old wooden roller coaster, restaurants and shops. However the beach
does sometimes have an atmosphere of college student rivalry and a
nightlife scene. You can pick up shells and enjoy the scenery. You may
even spot a baby seal. Even said, possibly the best
beach in San Diego.
There is a trail the traverses the 1,7 km of Torrey Pines State Beach. The cliffs, lighthouse and walks make this one of the best day trips in the area. This is a family activity and has a number of beautiful spots to stop off and enjoy. Lots of people doing adventure sports like hand gliding and para sailing.

Pacific Beach has great sunsets and the tide goes a way out there.
Enjoy Crystal Pier and the great beach town atmosphere.
Here there are set apart areas for swimming and surfing on this one mile
beach. Perhaps not the best place for a family on a week end night but
does offer great strolls along the beach of a day.
