Pacific Beach is a neighborhood of San Diego, California bounded by La Jolla to the north, Mission Beach to the south, Interstate 5 and Clairemont to the east, and the Pacific Ocean to the west. While largely populated by surfers and college students, the population is becoming more professional and affluent, due to rising property and rental costs.

What Makes Pacific Beach Unique


  • Ocean Front Boardwalk has both modest and well proportioned resorts and hotels dot the coastline amongst bike and board rental stores, beachfront dining (with views), and many green parks.
  • Crystal Pier brings the Southern California past back to life. At one end of the pier a fascinating hotel that lets you “Sleep over Seas” and at the other end is a place to cast a line for fish.
  • Watch the boys and girls of summer surf the swells from above and feel at one with the sea as the old wooden pier rocks on with the waves.
  • Garnet Ave & Mission Blvd Shopping District is the main shopping district of Pacific Beach, filled with interesting shops, bars and restaurants. The shopping district has several brand name clothing stores, used clothing stores, and salons. Also in good supply are night clubs, including Moondoggies, Blind Melons, Tiki – Pacific Beach Nightclub, Plum Crazy.
