In San Diego, over 100 beaches on the coastline are available for families living in the city. This summer, with the eighty to ninety-degree weather, finding a more private beach can enhance that swimming suit tan!

With the many beaches surrounding the community just heading down the street can lead to endless possibilities of having the grooviest summer yet.

Just take the 52 West freeway to Torrey Pines road to get to La Jolla. Or drive down Balboa Avenue all the way down through Garnet Avenue and arrive in Pacific Beach.

Family beaches include La Jolla Shores. Preparing early in the morning can score the family van to get a front row space.

The cooler packed with snacks, unlimited sunscreen, and the best fitting swimming suit to wear for those waves!

“I loved going (to Windansea). I would recommend it to everyone! Parking was a little rough but so worth it!” said local guide, Chirelle Pearson.

Windansea and Black’s Beach are the top ones for the most relaxing surfing spot. The small cliffs overlooking the sand creates the best shade for the non-umbrella people.

Torrey Pines State Beach is known for the various trails leading towards the water. The trails include Guy Fleming, Razor Point, and Beach Trail.

Clairemont High School sophomore Emma Huffman said, “I have been to Torrey Pines and the views are mesmerizing… my friend also brought a camera for the rocky hike to the beach and it was definitely difficult to climb with a $1,000 camera around her neck.”

Summertime is a perfect time to swim and see the beautiful sea life and tide pools. Bring a camera for the beautiful scenery guiding toward the sand.

No need of a wallet, but snacks are a must. Eating and drinking will help get through the sweaty humidity.

With only two months left of school, it is time to purchase those bikinis and trunks for the warm salt water and the powdery sand on the fingertips.
