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.

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

  • There are four access points: The Torrey Pines Gliderport Trail, the Salk Canyon Road from UCSD, walking up along Torrey Pines State Beach, and, during low tides, La Jolla Shores. Drive up to the access points.

  • Okay okay okay this place wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am from Florida we are known for the beaches nice pearl white sandy beaches this doesn't have white sand and there isn't pearls but let me tell you something this beach is by far my top 3 beaches I've ever been to and coming from Florida that's a lot to say!!!!!!!! Yes I've been to the islands and yes I've been in the Caribbean and seen beautiful crystal clear water but this place has its own special place in my heart because a it is a nude beach be it's America's largest nude beach and see it goes and goes from Miles the way to get down from the top of the cliff to the bottom where the sand is is a great I repeat a great hike down a lot of stairs seems pretty easy going down have fun on the beach but you got to go back up and if you smoke heavy Cali Bud like I did it's going to be a nice trek!!😎

  • A bit of an excursion to get down to the beach but worth it to enjoy the beach sans swimsuit. Friendly folks there. Amazed how much stuff some take down: beach chair, umbrella, cooler just to relax. Great place for people new to clothing optional community to get started enjoying a beach environment the best way possible.

  • Black's is a Legend unto itself. Best beach break in the U.S.A. hands down. When there's a south swell it can break in a big bowl section, you fall in love all over again. The beach is massive and it's a 7min hike down and 15min up. You can find space any time. yeah there's a nude beach here & it's a long distance from Scripps Pier to Torrey Pines State Beach. Plenty of room to do your thing. Note: I've been in love with this place since the early 80s. Peace.

  • 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.
