Del Mar, Black’s Beach and Mission Beach

North of La Jolla, under Torrey Pines, there’s a really cool beach with steep cliffs and giant waves. When we went, we parked at the Torrey Pines Glider Parking Lot… which would’ve been fine, but we ended up going down a super steep path that turned into a gulley really fast… so if you park there, maybe find a different way down or ask someone that works at the glider place.

The beach isn’t completely black, it has some beige sand too which makes it look even cooler when they mix.

A better beach for people who aren’t going to surf or swim and just want to relax on a beach for a while would be Del Mar beach (north) or Mission Beach (south).
