Hallelujah! I took the time to finally walk the beaches of Solana Beach on a glorious summer day. It was super hot inland, so I thought, what better time to go and check out the coast? I have wanted to go to Solana Beach forever, so here I am!
Solana Beach is situated between Encinitas to the North and Del Mar to the South, and the beach stretches for over 1.7 miles.
Solana Beach has also been a favorite hangout of juvenile great white sharks in the past couple of years!
Fun Fact- Solana is Spanish for “warm wind”
So here is a list of the beaches of Solana Beach that I had the pleasure of walking on, starting first from the North down to the South-
- South Cardiff State Beach- Seaside Beach
- Tide Park Beach
- Fletcher Cove
- North Seascape Surf Park
- Del Mar Shores
- Del Mar North Beach (Del Mar)
Let’s now look at each beach, followed by exciting facts highlighting each area.
South Cardiff State Beach- Seaside Beach
Seaside Beach is the very first beach on the northern boundary of Solana Beach. Two popular offshore surf breaks, Seaside Reef and Cardiff Reef, make South Cardiff State Beach a surfing mecca for locals and tourists alike.
I have always had a deep-seated passion for the Ocean Environment which ultimately led me to receive a degree in Marine Biology. Living in the San Diego area for over 30 years, I have extensively explored the 70 miles of San Diego’s coastline, and I am here to share!
