Full description
Discover the bright skies and gentle ocean breezes along San Diego's coast on this private tour. Stop at many different beaches and bays along the Pacific Ocean. Each beach has its own distinct Southern California beach culture, from skaters on boardwalks to secluded beaches and laid-back hang-outs where surfers rule the waves. Your private tour of the San Diego Coast visits the finest coastal stretches to discover the heart and soul of this coastal city. First stop will be the white sands of Coronado Island, home to the haunted Hotel Del Coronado, and boasting quintessential San Diego seaside allure. Next, Ocean Boulevard evokes the era of Marilyn Monroe, who famously filmed "Some Like It Hot" here in 1958. Next, on to Seaport Village, where a picturesque century-old harbor boasts numerous seafood bistros and waterfront cafes. Then, along the Point Loma Peninsula’s western shoreline, discover the 68-acre Sunset Cliffs Natural Park. This encompasses native coastal scrub, dramatic cliff formations, craggy caves, intertidal lagoons, and mesmerizing panoramic ocean views. Your tour continues on to Ocean Beach, with its laid-back rhythm. It has a vintage SoCal hippy vibe with surf shops, taco stands, microbreweries, and dog-friendly beaches. Here, you can enjoy a pit-stop at one of the many beachside eateries, or wait until you hit the crashing waves of the Pacific Beach. Serious surfers head to Pacific Beach - or “PB” as the locals call it - for an electric party atmosphere, glowing bonfires, and excellent swells. Your final stop is La Jolla, a scenic stretch dubbed ‘Paradise by the Sea’. Sheltered by a 300-ft rocky bluff, it's home to seals, sea lions, numerous seabirds, lush beach flora, and a wide sweep of soft honey-colored sand.
