North Pacific Beach

The beach area north of Crystal Pier extends approximately one mile from the north end of the community of Pacific Beach to the south end of the community of La Jolla. This beach is bordered by cliffs up to 75 feet in height. A sidewalk traverses the cliff-top along much of the south end of the beach. In this area, parking is very limited.

At the north end of the beach is Tourmaline Surfing Park which includes a public parking lot and limited facilities. This area is heavily used by surfers and sailboarders year round.

More information

This beach has separate water areas reserved for swimming and surfing. Check with lifeguards for details.

Surfing is permitted at this beach.

This beach is not recommended for scuba due to lack of undersea life, heavy water activity, and surf.

Restrooms and Showers
Public restrooms and showers are located at the foot of Diamond Street and Law Street on the south end and at Tourmaline Surfing Park on the north end.

Public Transit:
Call San Diego Transit at (619) 233-3004 for buses that serve this beach.

A 175 space parking lot with 3 disabled spaces can be found at the foot of Tourmaline Street. In summer, this lot fills to capacity by mid-day. All other parking is limited to on-street parking in residential areas.
