“Great Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Nice place to walk on the beach or alongside it(if you have a wheelchair, for example). Great people watching opportunities along with watching surfers.

“Pacific Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Pretty cool beach with an awesome view of the Pacific with a sweet boardwalk with many bars, restaurants, and souvenir shops. Crystal pier right there too so you can take in the view or rent some fishing poles and fish off the pier. Fun for all ages.

“LOVED Pacific Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Pacific Beach was a blast. I went here with my friend last year for our summer break. There's plenty to do, including several shops and a nice boardwalk that goes up the coast. The only issue is parking, so be sure to get there early to get a good spot, otherwise you need to walk a bit. Also, no matter where you are on the coast, the sunset is incredible. So enjoy!

“Fantastic area to watch the sunset or sit on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

The beach is fantastic and the area is lively. There is a beach walk with lots of people going by and you can walk for quite a while. You will see surfers and beachcombers a like. The area has lots of restaurants, bars and shops. Great place to visit to dip in the ocean and then visit the town.
