  • Love going here for beautiful walks! There is usually a nice ocean breeze which I enjoy a lot. The beach is not crowded comparing to surrounding beaches. Right off the beach you can walk up the Torry ...  read more »
  • The beach looks phenomenal especially at sunset. Small hikes are easy walk. $20 car entrance fee is a bit pricey. 
  • beautiful hike with amazing views! can walk down to the beach too! would be best to go during the week and when it isn't too hot. high recommend! 
  • Great beach and cliff trail, hike to the top on one side and down to the beach on the other. Truly beautiful!
  • The state beach at Torrey Pines isn’t the most picturesque beach in the world, but for the price, it’s not bad. Parking can be incredibly hard on nice days, even in the early spring, and may require a lengthy patient wait for people to leave. The same lot serves the reserve trail with great views, so it fills up quickly. The beach itself is a pebble beach, so not the most comfortable to sit out on, but it can be done. The surfing is not bad and lessons are run from here as well. Lifeguards are periodically on duty, but not that often, so check the schedule if it matters to you. The sunsets are pretty great here, but again you’ll need o plan ahead to get a parking spot.
  • I really enjoy this beach. It's kind of a narrow piece of beach, but seems to usually be less crowded. Just be mindful of the tide because it can come all the way up the beach to the rocks at a really high tide.
  • Nice beach, clean however water shut off at restroom area for rinsing sand off so be prepared for getting sand in car.
  • Such a great beach! This is where we normally surf when we are in town
