Beaches Index

North Pacific Beach / Tourmaline Surfing Park
(aka Baja La Jolla)

General:
On the north side of Crystal pier is North Pacific Beach, which extends approximately one mile from the north end of the community of Pacific Beach to La Jolla. This part of the beach is bordered by huge cliffs reaching up to 75 feet. At the north end of North Pacific Beach is Tourmaline Surfing Park. The long, rolling waves here attract the longboarders year around and divers enjoy the underwater sea life when visibility is good. This is also a favorite spot for sailboarders. Body boards are frowned upon here. The "local" longboarders have been coming here for 30 years, and there is a "turf" issue. If you are a beginner, and want to try this area, the waves at the far right end are for you, if you can handle the locals. Just stick to the rules, be polite, and someday, about 30 years from now, you may be one of "them."

Activities:
Surfing, diving, sailboarding
Swimming not permitted. This is a designated surfing and diving location only.

Lifeguards are staffed at this beach year round, generally from 9:00 am to dusk.
