La Jolla Beaches
La Jolla Beaches information
Some of the county’s best beaches are north of the Shores in Torrey Pines City Park , betweeen the Salk Institute and Torrey Pines State Reserve. Hang-gliders and paragliders launch into the sea breezes rising over the cliffs at Torrey Pines Gliderport , at the end of Torrey Pines Scenic Dr. It’s a beautiful sight – tandem flights are available if you can’t resist trying it.
Down below, Black’s Beach is one of America’s most storied clothing-optional venues – though bathing suits are technically required, most folks here don’t seem to know that; there’s a gay section at the far (north) end.
At extreme low tides (about twice per year), you can walk from the Shores north to Del Mar along the beach.
