Tide Beach Park is the north beach of Solana Beach, CA. Hike down a long set of stairs from the intersection of Pacific Avenue and Solana Vista Drive and you’ll be at a semicircular cove below tall steep bluffs. At high tide the beach is confined to this cove. When the tide allows, you can walk from here north to Seaside Beach in Cardiff State Beach or south to Fletcher Cove. Also at low tide you can explore tide pools at the north end of the cove. The narrow beach around Tide Beach Park is backed by cliffs and man-made protective walls that keep homes at the bluff’s edge from falling into the Pacific Ocean. Surfers ride waves that break out near a reef known as Tabletops or Seaside Reef. Look for free street parking nearby the intersection.
