Visitors to the San Diego area looking for funky beach towns full of character will find it all in San Diego’s legendary surf breaks and bohemian ocean beaches. Just minutes from Mission Beach, Sunset Cliffs, and downtown San Diego, this picturesque location overlooking the azure waters of the Pacific Ocean is much more than just a SoCal beach town.
Ocean Beach reigns supreme for those looking for a true getaway populated chiefly by locals rather than tourists. The quirky neighborhood of Ocean Beach feels more appealing because it’s a beach town with fewer tourists than its San Diego neighborhood. Ocean Beach offers many activities, such as fishing at the Ocean Beach Pier, skateboarding, strolling the famous farmers market, hiking cliff-top trails, surfing legendary waves, or watching the sunset at an oceanfront happy hour spot.
