2. Torrey Pines State Beach

This is La Jolla's northernmost beach, stretching four miles between Del Mar, past Los Penasquitos Marsh Natural Preserve, to the base of the sandstone cliff at Torrey Pines Mesa and the Gliderport. It is adjacent to the Torrey Pines State Reserve and is a favorite beach for both tourists and locals. You can enter this beach from North Torrey Pines Road or by trail from the Reserve. Torrey Pines is a good beach for swimming, surfing, fishing, and, at low tide, for walking. High cliffs line the shore, creating a colorful backdrop at sunset. Views from the top of the cliffs are stunning. For access to hiking trails, take the steps north of Flat Rock (also called Bathtub Rock). You will also find the most parking here - two lots with 700 spaces. As this beach is a state reserve, parking and access fees are required. Gates open at 8 am and close at sunset. General admission is $10, Seniors (62+) $9, and Disabled $5 (with a qualified Department of Parks and Recreation pass). At the north end of the beach are lifeguards and restrooms. A picnic area and parking lot are near the entrance on North Torrey Pines Road.
