- Del Mar Beaches -
Have you ever dreamed that there were still beautiful and private beaches in southern California?
Del Mar Beaches have plenty! They are available to the public, yet lack the classic so-cal crowd. When my wife and I got engaged and wanted some beach front pictures, we knew where to go... Del Mar is perfect for families, romance, weddings or vacations.
Some of the most beautiful trails and beaches in all of San Diego are left purely for those with local knowledge to enjoy. This is where we come in.
There are two public coastal parks in Del Mar. One is called the Powerhouse and the other is Seagrove parks. Go to the end of 15th street and you will find access to these as well as the renowned "15th street" Del Mar surf break. Further up there is the North Beach for Dog friendly beaches.
If you want to explore, go for a great walk, or have a romantic picnic without the crowd, try going down to the end of 9th street. You will walk across a railroad track (be careful, we are not responsible for your safety, use your own good judgement), and you will come upon one of the most beautiful and best kept secrets. My wife and I both love it here. The beaches, cliff-side, and surf spots are all amazing.
Del mar also has plenty of great restaurants and activities. Jake's Del Mar is a 5 star seafood restaurant at 2-star prices. Shimbashi Izakaya is the spot for sushi. And of course, there is the Del Mar fairgrounds and race track that is full of events...just be careful for traffic with the Del Mar Fair.
When the Fair or Races aren't going, Torrey Pines State Park and Crest Canyon both have great hiking trails. Scripps Bluff Preserve is home of the San Dieguito River Lagoon, which has recently been restored and is looking quite beautiful.
