Picnicking along the Shore

Sunny San Diego Beach Picnic Spots

San Diego’s warm climate is ideal for a variety of activities, including picnicking! Not only will a picnic on the beach offer vacationing families benefits in terms of cost savings, it is a great way to enjoy an afternoon and create lasting memories. Some of the beaches ideal for picnicking in San Diego include both state and city run beaches.

Silver Strand is a state beach that has overnight camping for self contained RVs and also welcomes day visitors who are just looking to enjoy an evening under the San Diego sunshine. During the summer there are fire pits and charcoal ranges available for barbecues, as well as a full service snack bar.

Torrey Pines Beach is another state beach that covers just about 1700 acres. Work up an appetite hiking or biking on the many trails at Torrey Pines. Don’t worry, the beach has accessible parking so you can leave your cooler and picnicking supplies behind while you enjoy the scenery. There are also designated areas for picnics where visitors will be able to spread out and relax.

La Jolla Shores is a local beach found just north of the downtown district of San Diego. The shores have areas designated for grilling, as well as benches and grassy areas for families to sit down. When staying at one of the cheap San Diego inns near the beach, getting to La Jolla shores takes about 10 or 15 minutes. However, the drive is worth it as you can continue the fun with a variety of activities including swimming, surfing, snorkeling and kayaking.

Crown Point is a beach that is recognized for its bonfires. At dusk, residents and visitors can often be found gathering around the fire, laughing and sharing stores. There is also a great biking/walking path and plenty of grass space for group games and events. For those traveling with younger children, there is also playground and a basketball court.
