Marine Street Beach in La Jolla

Although one of the prettiest beaches in the San Diego area, Marine Beach is not a family-oriented beach. It is popular with local body surfers and body boarders because of its wicked shore-break that delivers an adventurous ride. Inexperienced body surfers are advised to be very careful dealing with the rough waves.

With its gorgeous white sand, spectacular views and relative privacy, Marine Beach makes for perfect sunbathing. However, there are no public restrooms or picnic spots and the rough surf is not safe for children. Lifeguards are at the beach during the summer months and some peak weekends during the spring and fall. The popular Windansea Beach is just to the south of Marine Street Beach. Early morning is a great time to take a stroll along the beach where you will be rewarded with awesome scenic views.

Marine Beach is located near the downtown La Jolla Village area so it is convenient to boutique shopping, fine restaurants and active nightlife. There is no public parking at the beach, so you should plan to get there early to find the most convenient street parking.
