With arguably some of San Diego’s best waves, Black’s Beach can be found in the vicinity of the University of California San Diego campus, at the southern end of Torrey Pines State Beach and north of La Jolla Shores. Stately eight-figure mansions and state-of-the-art medical research labs now line the bluffs where pastures and the Black family horse farm once lay. Hence the name, Black's Beach.
Black’s is famous among surfers for big winter swells, however it is better known to the rest of the world as San Diego's nude beach. Although nudism is unlawful in San Diego, it has persisted at Black’s for decades with the only real deterrent being the hike to get there. The nudists (or 'nakes' as surfers call them) tend to hang out north of the Glider Port Trail, while surfers head south to the main peaks. For the most part, surfers and nakes are the only people motivated enough to make the hike to Black’s, so if these aren't your motives, you might want to think about heading to La Jolla Shores instead.
Black’s Beach can be difficult to access due to its location beneath the Torrey Pines bluffs. There are four access routes to Black’s Beach:
