Torrey Pines State Beach - Review
This wide and sandy and windy beach has two parts - north and south. The south side is marked by sandstone cliffs. It is the bodyboarders and swimmers section. If you move north, you'll find a flag posted into the ground. Once you've crossed it, usually close to where sandstone cliffs end and the Los Penasquitos Lagoon salt marsh begins, you're in the north side. The north side is more popular with surfers, but generally less crowded than the south side. The three hundred feet tall sandstone cliffs are rather dramatically lit at sunset, which is a great time to click photos. A portion of the beach, known as Black Beach, is popular with nudists.

Torrey Pines State Beach, San Diego Reviews
Beautiful beach and medium difficulty in the hike to the top but definitely worth the views. Parking was $25 and you can also drive to the top. The Cliffs are beautiful from the top and the bottom. Hike to the top and then hike down the beach trail or walk along the cliffs on the beach. There's a sushi food truck in the parking lot and vending machines.
This is a beautiful spot while in your car. You can drive and park and sit in your car and just watch the waves sometimes we open the back of our car and sit and have lunch and a glass of wine and just listen to the ocean it is so peaceful and romantic. I would highly recommend checking it out!
What else more do I need to say it's Torrey Pines! This place is just flat awesome and I will continue to come here for as long as I am in California!
Love love this place. From relaxing to hiking. You do not leave unsatisfied
Not as crowded - less tourists - you can hike Torrey Pines or walk to Blacks. A bit rocky but good surf.
