Owner description: A popular beach in the San Diego area for sunbathing and surfing.
Reviewed 16 July 2014

It is scenic and long. Southern California beaches are open to all, unlike the beaches on the East coast.

Spent a great day along the beach. Was clean and nice. Life Guard towers were staffed. Surf was nice for both surfing and body boarding. Tide wasn't too strong so kids could play without much worry. Dinning is close to the beach.

This beach is always a little gem in San Diego. The beach is clean, safe and the lifeguards are great. In the winter you can bring your dog and the people are nice. No alcohol. Great family beach where you can surf and swim.

This beach is in a great location. It is so easy to get to and comparing it to La Jolla, the traffic congestion a lot less. The beach is clean and it seems laid back. it does seem to be more families.The waves were great.

But if you are a person who collects sea shells, you will be out of luck. There are a lot of cool rocks, but no seashells.

It is a bummer that there is not a free parking lot similar to La Jolla, but there is a lot of neighborhood parking you can find. Otherwise it is like $3 an hour or $15 for the day.

We sat in front of the Poseidon which also has a snack shack that we serves snacks and burgers.

We were in San Diego a week and we went to this beach three times.

Del Mar beach has two parks, Powerhouse Park and Seagrove Park that overlook the beach if you do not want to be on the sand. My advice, park above Luneta that is north of PCH in the neighborhood district and walk down. Jakes Del Mar which is a steak restaurant and Poseidon which is a great pick up place for the over 40 crowd is right on the beach. Clean, can walk with your dog leashed in the winter, makes this a very special place on earth. And I live there!
