Marine Street Beach

Marine Street Beach

Located near the upscale community of La Jolla, the

Marine Street Beach is a small cluster of high end

clothiers, hotels, shops, and galleries. The

the beach is also legendary to body surfers and body

boarders due to its thunderous waves which always

seem to crash the shoreline at the right time.

Keep in mind, this beach may not be ideal for

families, as there are no public restrooms, picnic

areas and the rough surf conditions aren’t well

suited for children. If you have a family, you may

want to find another beach.

Marine Street Beach

Even though it isn’t the best beach for families,

Marine Street Beach offers plenty of privacy and

gorgeous white sand that can make for a fun day

of sunbathing with friends.

The rough waves found at this beach have been

known to seriously injure swimmers and bodyboarders

in the past. If you aren’t that experienced with

the water, you should always make sure that you

respect both the water and the waves here.

During the summer months and on peak weekends during

the fall and spring, there are lifeguards stationed

on the beach. You should plan to park on the

street at Marine Street Beach, as there are no

public lots. You should try to get here early,

as it can be very hard to find a parking space,

especially during summer and on the weekends.
