Torrey Pines State Beach is located north of La Jolla. This 3 mile long beach has breathtaking scenery of the Pacific Ocean and the gorgeous sandstone cliffs. Enjoy swimming, hiking, surfing, collecting shells, and picnicking along with the panoramic views.
This is a beautiful beach bordered partially by 300 foot sandstone cliffs. The south end of the beach is is reserved for swimmers and the north end for surfing.

This is one of my favorite beaches. The beach area closest to Hwy. 101 is easily accessible and gets the most visitors. The area to the south is hidden by the bluffs and is usually not crowded.
You can park in the lots just off the highway or enter the Torrey Pns. State Reserve and park just beyond the entrance gate. There is a fee for entering the reserve. The reserve has miles of hiking trails and a visitors center. The trail from the visitor's center down to the beach is a beautiful hike.
From San Diego travel north on I-5 toward La Jolla. Exit at Carmel Valley Rd. and turn left. Turn left onto N. Torrey P. Rd.
