State Beach

"Photo: View of the ocean through the pines at Torrey Pines State Beach"
State beaches are areas with frontage on the ocean, or bays designed to provide swimming, boating, fishing, and other beach-oriented recreational activities. This wide, sandy beach stretches 4 1/2 miles from Del Mar past Los Peñasquitos Lagoon to the base of sandstone cliffs at Torrey Pines Mesa. Swimming, surfing and fishing are popular. Red-hued bluffs and wet sand make strolling on the beach popular at low tide. A picnic area and parking lot are near the entrance on North Torrey Pines Road.

The beach can also be reached by trail from the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve

Torrey Pines prohibits dogs anywhere within the reserve and beach boundaries (even within a vehicle).

The Beach is located one mile south of Del Mar on North Torrey Pines Road.
