About Black's Beach, San Diego

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 Information

  • Dogs on leashes only, between 6pm and 9am (4pm-9am November - March)

How To reach Black's Beach by Public Transport

  • Nice beach with good cliff views. Its a much longer hike down and back up than everywhere else, so be prepared for that. But it also keeps the crowds down.

  • Hike is hardcore when coming back up, is pretty awkward unless you're cool with seeing naked old guys. If you keep more to the left side of the beach you won't see as many naked people. Not going to lie, I've seen women get hit on by creepy naked guys here. The landscape is breathe taking, you can see through the lines of sediment and out of all the beaches in San Diego I find the best seashells in this location.

  • Kind of a narrow beach. But definitely a good ocean view from the top of the cliff. On the beach, safety guards patrol with their vehicle. Good beach for a 5 mile run. And yes I did not know at first, but it's a nude beach lol.

  • Twice there. Mostly gays naked, few women so that says that it's probably a gay beach but not limited to some families with kids. Beautiful scenery. Big beach without danger of the waves. Easy to swim and enjoy.

  • Best beach in San Diego. Especially in the summer when all other beaches are overcrowded. Make sure to forget your swimsuit too.
