Black's Beach

Venue Info

Black’s Beach is known best as San Diego’s gay and nude-friendly beach, but you'll also find many families with young children here enjoying some of the most stunning beach scenery in the county. Nestled under the bluffs at Torrey Pines State Reserve, Black’s Beach offers views of La Jolla to the south and San Diego’s coastal towns to the north. The best parking is by the Torrey Pines Gliderport, where gliders soar off cliffs while beachgoers start the steep, heart-pumping hike down the cliffs and onto the sand. A favorite path down is the harrowing Ho Chi Minh Trail, named in the ’60s by a group of surfers.
