Del Mar, specifically, is known for it’s great beach and reef breaks. From the north end of Del Mar, heading south, there are beach breaks from 29th to 15th Streets, with 25th, 23rd & 19th seeming to break a bit better than the others. From 15th Street, there are very good reef breaks at the ends of many of the streets, with a short climb down the sandstone bluffs to get to the water. Due to limited parking in the city, the breaks rarely get too crowded. Also, within 20 minutes north or south, you’ll find some of the best surfing in California.
Take a ride down San Diego’s coastline on the historic Pacific Coast Highway. If your preference is dirt, San Diego’s Coast to Crest trail begins just a half mile from Del Mar. Revolution Bikes is the place to rent road bikes and stop by Elecycle for electric bike rentals.
