Filthy beach
May 2021 • Family
Really filthy beach we ith tons of sea weed, garbage and mosquitos all around.. Great party beach though, with great cheap bar options for 18-25year olds all along the beach. LA JOLLA shores and Coronado are much cleaner and more.upscale.

Great Place for Sand Dollars!
May 2021
Lovely walking on this beach for anyone. One direction gets you into the rocks but watching the Bobbing "Potters" (people otters!) was amazing. Other direction was the place to find sand dollars galore!

CANT WAIT TO MOVE PLEASE READ!
May 2021 • Solo
Ok where to start... I live here and it is SO dangerous, if you walk on the boardwalk you are at risk of being stabbed by a homeless, rape, murder, robbery is VERY common here, our crime rate is 5,172 every 100,000 people we have a worse crime rate then the most dangerous city in America, please use caution if you are a woman it’s dangerous for you guys, and your kids. Please stay safe out here, and forget about your political opinion you will most likely be attacked if you share it, stay safe and thank you.

Entertaining Evening on the Pier & Boardwalk!
Mar 2021 • Family
The Pacific Beach area has something for everyone! There are some great restaurants close to the boardwalk, a lively bar scene along the boardwalk, shops, a great beach area, surfing fun, a pier for fishing, an exercise path, and a great view of the gorgeous San Diego sunsets!! It has a nice, friendly beach vibe for the younger set (college age). There is also a considerable homeless population, and why not - gorgeous area to set up camp!

A nice beach
Jan 2020
Long nice pier, a white sandy beach, equals a lot of things to do, fishing, surfing, swimming, sunbathing, jogging walking around on the beach, there are also a lot of available shops and restaurants.

What a quaint place to visit. Plenty of space to walk. You can find almost anything you need within walking distance. The night life seemed fun! Lots of college students in the area. Some homeless and plenty of surfer watching. The evenings the locals had bonfires on the beach. Was great to see! We loved the freedom of fresh air and walking as far as we wanted on the beach!

All in 2 miles!

We spent a week there in Nov 2020 and could not have enjoyed ourselves more! The beach is flat with soft sand and no rocks. The waves were gentle and there was lots of tide pooling and shell catching along the beach.

Fun, Exciting and Entertaining
Aug 2020
I have a mixed opinion of Pacific Beach-based on what my intentions are for the day. You can find a very fun and raucous bar scene here but you also have great scenery, exercise, and a diversity of people. There are times when I just go for sunsets and there are times when I go to have fun. Sometimes I end up doing both. Don't forgot to check out the Bubble man if you go!
