“Great beach”

Easy parking and terrific beach for walking and watching surfers. A great way to soak up San Diego sunshine. There's swimming, surfing, scuba diving, fishing.

“Mother nature and privacy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Classic southern California beach scenery - surf & sand, ideal for family vacation. Local police trying its best not to be intrusive on local population by employing high tech surveillance and undercover plainclothes personnel and vehicles vice uniformed officers to minimize appearance of over policing...nice touch, notes well taken (just wish other cities around have as much budget to employ such tactics). ;)
