    Two And A Half Miles Of Del Mar Beach

    Before Del Mar Plaza, before the Race Track, before the Resort Hotels even before the tent city there was the beach.

    This stretch of coastline is a combination of flat sandy beach and craggy bluffs which adds to the charm. Activities at Del Mar beach include surfing, boogie boarding, swimming, sun bathing, picnicing and at certain times of the year you can bring your dog for a run in the water.

    The city of Del Mar has more restrictions at their beach than other cities and parking is not free in all areas and often not easy to find.

    Lifeguards are on-duty especially during the summer and weekends.

    TANNING  OR  BURNING?

    The blazing sun quickly tans in Del Mar even in April. So if you like it go. I - with my skin white like a flour that time - skipped it.

    BEACH

    If you are in April there and if you accept a little cold water you can try - there were a few human sea lions that time :-).

    Lovely beach

    BEACH

    Today, the City of Del Mar is two square miles of coastal land with a population of about 5000. The main attraction of visitors is still the beach and sunny weather.
