  • A must see. I'm tearing up just trying to find the words to explain what a wonderful experience it was. All ages, just a cpl hours, but it was perfect for our family. Lemonade, Funnel Cakes, Arcade Ga...  more »

  • This paved walk is separated from the beach by only a low wall, so the views are amazing. The total span is about 2.5 miles from Jetty Park up to Crystal Pier, and then you can go another 3/4 mile nor...  more »

  • Free parking, tons of stuff to do, beach great sights, and interesting people!! Tons of fun for the whole family. Literally miles of great sand and surf (watch out for frequent riptide) the boardwalk is awesome. Great arcade, rides and fun places to eat. The shops have reasonable prices on beachware, and have some great sunglass stores. Outdoor showers, so so bathrooms, but also a decent police presence to keep some beach creeps away. Nice spot!
  • Lots of fun. Lots of cool shops. It is on a very nice beach. Parking is a little far away. Plan on walking 3-4 blocks from the closest parking lot.
  • Nice long boardwalk where you can listen to the waves. It gets crowded on weekends so be prepared for that. This is a calmer boardwalk because there are fewer shops lining it. There were surfers and body boarders in the ocean, they were fun to watch too. Enjoy
  • Place to be. It is like the San Diego Venice beach. Lot of people walking cycling skating and surfing. The ocean can get bad with big weather here. Like rip current and huge waves. But usually a nice spot for boogie boarding and stuff. Not much sea weed 😀
  • I like to walk with my mom the whole length of the boardwalk and really enjoy it. I like to watch people riding their bikes or skateboards. I like to see other walkers like me. It is a great experience. What I don't like and that is the reason of minus one star is all the drunks laying there on the floor in different areas of the boardwalk. To me it ruins the experience. Another negative is the lack of cleanliness in some areas. People need to take care of this Gem and cleanup after their pets !

Where to stay in San Diego

Offering accommodations at a wide range of price levels, San Diego is one of the easiest cities to stay in, regardless of whether you're simply passing through or hanging around for a long vacation. If you don't mind splurging, book your stay at a luxury downtown hotel or a lavish bayside resort. You can also rent a spacious private cottage within walking distance of the city's popular beaches. For a more affordable alternative, try a family-friendly hostel or quaint inn in a quiet residential area.
