Del Mar beach rentals are surrounded with the best beach and reef breaks in the region; it's excellent for vacationers who want to experience the ultimate surfing escapade while visiting California. Del Mar is one of those towns in Southern California that has maintained a commercial-free oceanfront. Instead of being bombarded with souvenir booths and food stalls by the ocean, Del Mar offers huge and appealing spaces for tourists and locals alike. You can also look forward to the yearly Del Mar racetrack while staying in your own Del Mar rental. There's never a dull day in Del Mar as you spend a fun-filled day at the ocean catching waves, tide pooling or simply fishing with family and friends.
If you head further south of Del Mar Beach, you'll experience one of the best left breaks in the area. Expect huge swells as Scripp Canyon's deep water swells hit shallow reefs. You should be cautious, though; the beach's unstable cliffs may give in anytime. False trails are also common so it is best to know the directions well before heading to Black's Beach. Nude sunbathing is common within the beach's vicinity.
Del Mar Rivermouth
At the north end of Del Mar Beach, you can catch the huge swells at The Rivermouth. Summer offers the best surfing conditions, with the winds coming from the east providing the best waves. These waves either break left or right and most of them originate from ground swells. Waves are inconsistent during spring so the area is not really that crowded during spring break.
The Solana Beach in the north offers several excellent beach breaks for surfing enthusiasts; two of these are the Seaside Reef and Tabletop. You can surf the whole year round in Solana, particularly at the Fletcher Cove and the Tide Beach Park. Along the coast, you can browse surf shops, art galleries, grocery stores and restaurants.
Cardiff Reef and Pipes
Cardiff Reef is excellent for longboarders where the waves consistently break to the left and right. You can reach Cardiff Reef by taking Highway 101 and by locating the San Elijo Lagoon. At the mouth of the lagoon, you'll find the reef with its white sand coastline. Because of its consistent breaks the whole year round, Cardiff Reef attracts amateur and professional surfers from around the world. You can also go far north of the reef and find the Pipes, an excellent spot for wakeboarding.
Formerly known as Swami's, Swamis is now an international surfing destination along Del Mar Beach, just a few minutes away from Pipes. This right point break surfing spot provides the best swells during winter. Surfing at Swamis is favorable during low to mid tide with northwest or west swell direction. A cliff top park is accessible where you can eat and rest after spending a day under the sun.
