Overview

Although this park is located within San Diego's city limits, it remains one of the wildest landscapes along the Southern California coast, with miles of unspoiled beaches, chaparral, elegant Torrey Pine trees and a lagoon vital to many species of migrating birds.

The perfect way to spend an afternoon. Hike or simply sit and watch the paragliders. Free parking. Nice food stand.

We love the hiking trail and the beach at Torrey Pines. The beach is extremely family friendly and very scenic. We have often seen sea lions here as well!
