Pacific Beach is a community of San Diego extending approximately 3 miles along the Pacific Ocean. At the north end of the beach is Tourmaline Surfing Park, a favorite area used by surfers and sail-boarders year round. The immediate beach area directly to the south extends for about one mile and is bordered by cliffs above a sandy beach. Crystal Pier, a publicly accessible free fishing pier, is a well known landmark just to the south where the cliffs gently lower to beach level. The beach continues south for about two miles becoming Mission Beach and ending at the inlet to Mission Bay. At the south end of the beach area is Belmont Park complete with an old time roller coaster, fun rides, shops and restaurants.

North to Tourmaline Surf Park

Once a sleepy little beach town, Pacific Beach pulses today with the heartbeat of the young and active.  "PB", as it is known locally is home to many college students, single professionals and families.  A paved walkway parallels the beach from just south of Tourmaline Surfing Park to the navigable inlet almost 3 miles to the south. Walking, jogging, bicycling and skating are permitted on the walkway, but speed is regulated for safety reasons. There is no shortage of places to eat, drink, shop and party along Garnet Avenue and Mission Blvd., where dining becomes an adventure of choice with a wide range of ethnic restaurants, nightclubs, sports bars, pubs and coffee houses.  Pacific Beach is the most popular beach destination in the city of San Diego and draws large crowds in the summer, especially holiday weekends.
