Del Mar Shores Surf Spot

Del Mar Shores is one of those beaches that can be totally vacant on a hot summer day with great surf. It blends right in with the coast line and if you didn't know where it was, you would drive right by it without even a second look. But with this knowledge, you can score some awesome waves on a vacant San Diego beach.


Location:

Del Mar Shores is located just North of Downtown Del Mar and just South of Solana Beach. This beach access and beach aren't the easiest to find so follow our SanDiegoSurfers.com directions and we hope to get you there with ease!

Beach Accessibility and Conveniences:

The beach access is actually pretty hard to find if you don't know where to look. The beach entrance if located at the Northwest corner of Del Mar Shores Drive and is a small walkway that twists and turns through the apartment and condo buildings to a long set of stairs that will eventually lead you to the sandy beaches of Del Mar Shores.

First start by walking up Del Mar Shores Drive heading West.

 

Secondly, in the Northwest corner of Del Mar Shores Drive, the beach access can be seen. Find the sign pictured below and head North on the walkway.

Turn to the left and walk up the stairs and then continue on the walkway.

Continue down this walkway to the stairs which will lead you down to the beach.

Once you've finally reached the stairs at Del Mar Shores, walk down but take your time because the stairs are spaced at a awkward angle and are very easy to get tripped up on.

There are no restrooms or showers located at Del Mar Shores so be prepared and ready for any emergencies. The closest restrooms can be found walking South on the beach and are located at Dog Beach and are simple port-a-potties.

Lifeguard:

There is a lifeguard tower located at Del Mar Shores and is only open during the summer months. The lifeguard tower is located just South of the where the stairs drop you off onto the beach.

On top of the tower, there are also patrols that lifeguards routinely do in vehicles during the day hours.
