North Pacific Beach

North Beach is a calmer stretch of shoreline that families tend to prefer, thanks to its lifeguard-supervised swimming areas and amenities (including restrooms and showers). It’s a wide, sandy beach that sits below a series of bluffs, sheltering it from high winds and making it a great location to spread out and sunbathe for the day.
