Clean, family friendly beach
Jul 2021 • Family
We loved this beach. I went with my daughter and 3 year old grandson for a day in the sun and I have to say after going here, I never want to go back to the San Diego beaches again. The Del Mar beaches are clean and not crowded at all. There was no sea weed on the beach or stringy things grabbing your ankles when you walk in the water, either.

A must do
May 2021
This of course is the local place to get in the water yet people from up N and S head here too so it can get busy with parking a bit of a chore. There is a paid lot across the street. Be sure to feed your meter if you are doing street parking; as well don't park over 2 hours without moving the car if the sign warns you as our local patrols are always there. Good food withing walking distance though great for a picnic either on the beach or the grassy area just above it. There are a couple of low pressure outdoor showers to rinse as well!

Just another day in paradise
Apr 2021
Head away from Del Mar and towards the Solana/Del Mar beach boundaries, and end at the San Dieguito River channel (across the water is Dog Beach). This is the official designated stretch of what is called "city beach" (part of Main Beach).

Check out the map. Get a lay-of-the-land and a feeling for the beach terrain. Del Mar is a paradise of expansive sandy beach spots.

Staycation
Aug 2020
We enjoyed Del Mar City Beach during a staycation at L'Auberge Del Mar. We were there mid-week. The majority of people were wearing masks if they were walking around. The surf was great and the people very friendly. We'll be back.

wonderful, chill beach city where everyone is friendly and respectful, love it here, except the Noble hotel. Terrible, unsafe, smelly, dirty hotel.. do not stay there. the manager, Paris is abusive, and his boss, Nick, hung up on me after i was evicted for a higher paying customer.

Like a Postcard
Jan 2020
Fantastic beach with both sand and a grass rise to give you an even better view. Easy access with walkways and benches for those that don't get around easily. Kids of all ages will go nuts over the trains that run just behind the beach-very close up!. Cali surfing scene on prime display here. Just so scenic!

Lovely, Walkable Beach--but Beware the Sand Mites
Jan 2020
Del Mar Beach is a real treasure--gorgeous, fun, and eminently walkable. Only two problems: much of the sand is cindery, which will make your feet dirty, and it hosts sand mites, which bite.The locals must build up immunity b/c they're happily frolicking barefoot, but my reward for long walks was dozens of bites on my legs. Still, the beach is enchanting. (There's parking btw but it's limited.)
