Torrey Pines State Beach and Reserve
12600 N. Torrey Pines Road, San Diego, CA 92037
Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve between La Jolla and Del Mar offers beautiful ocean vistas, secluded hiking, and, of course, plenty of opportunities to see Torrey pine trees in their natural habitat. Beaches are for hiking as well as swimming and sunbathing, and for that purpose none is better in our county than the four-plus-mile stretch between Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Torrey Pines State Reserve. For most of this length, sharp cliffs rise behind the beach and hide the outside urban world's sight and sound.
