About Tourmaline Surfing Park Beach in La Jolla, California

Tourmaline Beach is at a San Diego area surfers’ mecca called Tourmaline Surfing Park. This beach sits on the border of the Pacific Beach and La Jolla districts of San Diego. The park is located where Tourmaline Street meets the ocean. There isn’t much grass at the park. It’s just a large parking lot right on the beach. If you want to swim go elsewhere because it’s not allowed in most areas at Tourmaline, but if you want to surf or sunbathe and watch surfers, kiteboarders, and windsurfers then this is a great place to visit any time of year. South of Tourmaline is the Crystal Pier at Pacific Beach. Walking north on Tourmaline eventually leads to a rocky beach and tide pools at the Linda Way Beach Access.
