Beat the Heat at Del Mar City Beach

With summer quickly approaching, there is no better way to spend your day than at one of San Diego’s finest beaches, the Del Mar City Beach.  Because of its close proximity to Carmel Valley, many residents flock here as a way to beat the heat and spend some quality time basking in the sunshine.  Del Mar City Beach runs from 15th Street to the Rivermouth, and is filled with crowds all summer long, ranging from college students to locals to families who have come to town to enjoy the County Fair and horse races.  It truly is a remarkable beach to stroll along while enjoying the view of not only the beautiful ocean, but of the multi-million dollar homes lining the beach.  In fact, 15th Street Beach was even ranked #4 in Time magazine’s 100 Greatest Beaches in the World!

Whether you enjoy laying in the sun, swimming in the ocean or getting in a little surf session, Del Mar City Beach can meet all those needs and more, even those of our favorite four legged friends.  The Rivermouth, found on the northern end of Del Mar Beach, is a great place to let your dogs roam around leash free and enjoy in their delight while they frolic in the waves.  It’s also a great spot to play beach volleyball, build sandcastles and take tiny tots when introducing them to the beach, as wading in the river and lagoon are safer for smaller children than the unpredictable surf.  Del Mar City Beach is truly one of the most scenic beaches in California and Carmel Valley residents love to flock here for its “chill vibe” and “breathtaking views.”

So make sure you take advantage of one of the Top 5 beaches in the world and head on down to Del Mar City Beach.  Just make sure you arrive early, especially on weekends and holidays, as parking can get a little crazy!!! Make it an all day outing with your family, snag a great parking spot and enjoy everything this wonderful beach has to offer!!  And if you get there early enough, you might even see a race horse or two from the nearby Del Mar tracks going through its morning training session! Definitely, a sight to see!
