This is one of my favorite spots in San Diego. You can walk along the beach, watch birds & fishermen, and listen to the crashing waves. Despite its city location, you feel miles away. The only challenge is finding street parking. Enjoy!

I grew up around water and now live in the desert so any opportunity to see the ocean is a welcome trip. The beach was nice and during high tide a fun time to walk along the water.

Loved going here in the late morning when the tide was down. Such hard packed sand and so easy to walk for miles💕

There are lots of views up and down the coast in this area, but here we found really peaceful and quiet views where you could just sit and listen to the ocean in peace.

Mission Beach and Pacific Beach (just walking distance north of Mission Beach) are just as good as Torrey. Enjoy.
