Del Mar City Beach

Del Mar City Beach

Del Mar City Beach stretches from 15th Street near Seagrove Park and Powerhouse Park northward to the cliffs at North Beach (aka Dog Beach). A great place for swimming, surfing, walking, and jogging. The beach is generally sandy with some cobblestones here and there and is lined with nice, expensive homes.

There are a number of restrictions for dogs based on location and date. Check signs at Del Mar Beach to verify information is still current.
