Your Guide to the Best Beaches in San Diego:

La Jolla Cove

Located directly in front of our San Diego beach hotel, La Jolla Cove is a small, scenic cove that is surrounded by cliffs. The cove is protected as part of a marine reserve - with very rich in marine life - making it popular with snorkelers, swimmers, and scuba divers. From late spring to early fall, it’s a favorite destination in the area for both locals and visitors. And just above this beautiful cove, you can also enjoy Scripps Park for picnicking and relaxing. Please note, no surf boards, boogie boards, kayaks, or fishing are allowed at La Jolla Cove. Explore the Cove before you get here from our exclusive webcam.

La Jolla Shores

La Jolla Shores is a one-mile beach that stretches from the cliffs of La Jolla Cove to Black's Beach south of Torrey Pines State Park. A much larger beach than La Jolla Cove, La Jolla Shores features Scripps Pier and is a popular launch point for kayakers, as it is the only beach boat launch in the San Diego city limits. The beach is also popular among stand-up paddlers, swimmers, snorkelers, and sunbathers. La Jolla Shores is about a 10-minute drive north of our San Diego oceanfront hotel.

Mission Beach / Pacific Beach

Located adjacent to one another, Mission Beach and Pacific Beach offer a bustling boardwalk and plenty of beach to sunbathe, swim, or surf. Visit the famous Giant Dipper roller coaster in Belmont Park, walk out on the Crystal Pier, or enjoy lunch at one of the many ocean view restaurants or bars. The people watching is fantastic (think Venice Beach), and its population soars in the summer with out-of-town guests. Please note, Pacific Beach is referred to as “PB” by locals and also offers a great nightlife along Garnet Avenue.
