4.8
#9 of 14 in Beaches in San Diego
State beaches are areas with frontage on the ocean, or bays designed to provide swimming, boating, fishing, and other beach-oriented recreational activities. This wide, sandy beach stretches 4 1/2 miles from Del Mar past Los Pe�asquitos Lagoon to the base of sandstone cliffs at Torrey Pines Mesa. Swimming, surfing and fishing are popular. Red-hued bluffs and wet sand make strolling on the beach popular at low tide. A picnic area and parking lot are near the entrance on North Torrey Pines Road.

  • Best local state Park in the area. Lots of photos opportunity at sun rise and sunset.
  • Torrey Pines is one of our favorite places in San Diego. We go there to get some exercise, enjoy time at the beach, or go on photoshoots with some friends. The landscape is so unique, the atmosphere is peaceful, and the staff are friendly.
  • Nice beach. One of the best beaches I have seen. The view from the cliff is awesome. Good parking space
  • My family and I love this beach. We live fairly close by and have tried many, but keep coming back. It's easy to get in and out of and good for families. Great sunsets too.
  • One of the best State beaches in our wonderful stare. Gorgeous, great parking, and some incredible trails to hike and run.
