Black's Beach - Review

Although officially a part of Torrey Pines State Beach, it's worth marking Black Beach distinctly from the rest of Torrey Pines for one reason - it's a nudist beach. You can get down to it from the glider port parking area, though the route is quite steep. An easier access point is from the intersection of Blackgold and La Jolla Farms Roads. The beach enjoys some high waves thanks to an underwater canyon, but the same feature can make it dangerous for swimmers. Like the rest of Torrey Pines, cliffs tower of the beach.

Black's Beach, San Diego Reviews

  • Had an argument with the love of your life? Hike down to Black's and embrace peace with your heart. Lost someone dear? Come to Black's and celebrate his or her life. Feeling like today this world is too small for you? Come to Black's and lose yourself. Any way you spin it, for a lot of people who simply love to live and to love, Black's Beach is one of San Diego's most beloved spots. Clean, secluded, and uncrowded yet uncrowned - come and see for yourself. I think you may fall in love with it just like I did the first time I came.

  • Really fun beach. Take the long way down and enjoy the fun hike down narrow trails looking over the ocean. For the amount of cars when I pulled in when I got to the backside of the beach the parking lot was empty and most of the people were on the whole other side so the beach I made it to only had about 12 people down the stretch of sand.

  • Best surfing in San Diego county. The waves are big and powerful so it is an EXPERTS ONLY wave. Be polite, respect the locals and follow the rules. You will get the wave of your life here, I sure did!

  • A nice place. The trail is moderate but a real killer when you spend the day at the beach and then go back up. It is nude but trying something new is fun.There is no sexual anything on the beach and if you try any thing, you will be kicked off the beach.this makes it family friendly.Waves can be a bit rough.

  • Love this Beautiful beach, is a long way down from the glider port, no restrooms on the beach so plan ahead. You can sunbathe nude or clothed, no one really cares, so give it a try if you have not been there.
