What are the Best Beaches in San Diego?

San Diego’s 70 miles of pristine coastline is one of the main draws of the Southern California city. When planning a vacation to San Diego, there is no doubt that your itinerary will include a day at the beach. While many locals and residents have their own opinions on which San Diego beach is the best, the Pacific Inn & Suites provides information about which beaches have been the most popular among our visitors.  Depending how you want to spend your beach day, use the following guide to pick the beach or beaches you are going to visit during your vacation.

La Jolla – Recognized as the Jewel of San Diego, La Jolla is a small beach community that attracts visitors for its boutique style downtown district filled with premier shopping and dining. The beach is popular among traveling families with mild waves ideal for swimming, snorkeling and learning how to surf. At the La Jolla Cove, there is plenty of opportunity to rent water equipment or sign up for surf lessons.

Mission Beach – Mission beach offers a laid back environment where people are often found sunbathing, playing volleyball or swimming in the ocean. Along Mission Beach is a boardwalk with stores and pathways to rollerblade and bike along. Be sure to check out the Mission Beach Coaster in Belmont Park, a wooden roller coaster from 1925 that is settled in the middle of thrilling boardwalk rides, carnival games and a variety of local restaurants.

Pacific Beach – Filled with beachside bars, Pacific Beach is known as a college town home to many students from the local universities. From bike riding to sun bathing, there is an endless list of activities to choose from. When in Pacific Beach, take a walk down Garnet Street and stop for lunch at one of the many eateries.

Coronado – For an unparalleled view of the city and the Pacific Ocean, there is no better place than Coronado. Located a few miles from the Pacific Inn & Suites, Coronado offers upscale dining as well as a stunning beach known to glisten under the San Diego sun. Voted as one of the best beaches in America in 2010, visitors must spend a day along the Coronado shores.
