San Diego's 70 miles of coastline offer families a variety of beaches that are perfect for swimming, surfing, sandcastle building, and any other family beach activity.
Family-friendly La Jolla Shores is a perfect beach for kids of all ages. This mile-long sandy beach slopes gently and has small, slow waves that make it an ideal place for younger kids to play in the shallow water and older kids to learn surfing, body boarding and other water activities. A wide cement boardwalk separates the beach from a large grassy park ideal for picnicking and volleyball games.
Shell Beach, at the south end of Ellen Browning Scripps Park, offers excellent tide pooling at low (preferably minus) tides. Plus, kids can watch seals and sea lions play, rest and sun themselves on a big rock offshore and the sandy cove to the south of Shell Beach.
Torrey Pines State Beach in La Jolla is a popular beach right off the highway with bathrooms, showers, lifeguards and a safe spot for kids to play by the lagoon. The bluffs above the beach are part of the 1,750-acre Torrey Pines State Reserve Park that is dedicated to preserving its namesake, the Torrey Pine tree (which grows only here), and other indigenous wildlife in its native environment. Eight miles of trails offer breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, while walking amid native chaparral plants, wildflowers, birds, reptiles and butterflies. With both family-friendly paths and more advanced trails, the park provides a great hiking experience for all levels.
Explore the tide pools at Swami's Beach in Encinitas at low tide and discover a plethora of aquatic life. Please note that the beach is only accessed via a long set of stairs from the small park and parking lot at the top.
Regularly recognized by the Travel Channel as "one of the 10 best family beaches in North America," Coronado Beach is perfect for an all-day stay for families. This long, wide, white sand beach offers plenty of space for paddleball, sandcastle building, kite flying and volleyball.
Favorite hangouts of active young sun-worshipers, Pacific Beach and Mission Beach are connected by a three-mile boardwalk with skaters, bicyclists and beachgoers just wanting "to be seen." During the day, the wide sandy beach becomes a colorful patchwork of towels, umbrellas, board shorts and bikinis. Nearby, oceanfront streets boast boutiques, surf shops and cheap eats that bustle with activity. Adjacent to Mission Beach is Belmont Park, featuring the vintage "Giant Dipper" roller coaster, an amusement arcade and more.
Coronado Beach has been recognized for many years as "one of the 10 best family beaches in North America" by the Travel Channel, but that doesn't mean it's just for kids. Along its vast expanse of white sand, impromptu football, volleyball and paddleball games spring up frequently, and the surf is generally gentle. In the village of Coronado, the small-town atmosphere is ideal for hanging out, shopping in the local boutiques and surf shops, and grabbing a burger or ice cream at an outdoor cafe. Bike rentals are available at the Coronado Ferry Landing and are the perfect way for teenagers to explore the island, with or without their parents.
