Pacific Beach in San Diego, California

Pacific Beach (the beach) is located between Pacific Beach Drive and the Crystal Pier in the Pacific Beach District of San Diego, CA. North of the pier is North Pacific Beach and south of Pacific Beach Drive is Mission Beach. All three of these beaches are part of The Strand.

Ocean Front Walk is a paved pathway that runs behind Pacific Beach and continues south behind Mission Beach to the end of the peninsula. This is a popular bike path and is lined with shops and restaurants at Pacific Beach.

Crystal Pier is a public fishing pier during the day and has a great vantage point to look at the city, the beach, and the surfers below.

On the pier there are Cape Cod-style cottages called the Crystal Pier Hotel that can be rented if you plan way ahead.

Pacific Beach is a very popular beach and since street parking is your best option it may require a long walk to get there unless you get an early start on the day.
