San Diego Coastal starts our County’s 70+ miles of coastline spanning from the Mexico Border to Camp Pendleton – with a lot of great beach in between!
San Diego Coastal may be home to some of the most quintessential California beach communities around.
Local pride abounds in Ocean Beach, a throw-back to a of a slower pace of life where tie-die tees, coffee with your neighbor and daily sunsets keep you happy. Just north the energy increases in Pacific Beach, where beach-bar lined main streets, cruiser bikes and youthful locals keep the SoCal life going all week long. And just further north La Jolla elevates beach living with a more chic European sense and a mountainside of luxury beach homes.
You can spend a day or weekend simply hopping from one great beach to another in San Diego. It just never gets old.
Walk the iconic Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach to watch local surfers catch the waves. Get your feet in the sand with Fido at Ocean Beach’s off-leash Dog Beach. Or sip a cocktail and take-in a rainbow of sunset at one of the many local eateries overlooking the water. Come back year-round for festivals, parades, live music and more. It’s always a party at the beach!

San Diego Coastal has steep historical roots perhaps most notable in our Cabrillo National Monument. Located at the southern tip of Point Loma, a peninsula separating San Diego Bay from the Pacific Ocean, the monument commemorates the landing of Juan Rodriguuez Cabrillo on September 28, 1542. This landing was the first time a European expeditionist set foot on what would later became the United States’ West Coast.
