A guide to visiting the best beaches in San Diego: Ocean Beach, Mission Beach, Pacific Beach, La Jolla Shores, and Black’s Beach.
Ocean Beach is home to the west coast’s longest pier.
Mission Beach is home to belmont park, a really neat wooden roller coaster, and a nice wide ocean-front boardwalk for biking, skating, walking, etc.
Pacific Beach is San Diego’s “Happy Hour Hangout” — you won’t have to walk very far to find the next bar!
La Jolla Shores is a gentle sloping beach with calm waves, perfect for learning how to surf.
Black’s Beach is San Diego’s unofficial nude beach.
