Live like a local and check out the different staircases at the dead end of the streets along the Cliffs. These provide access to tide pools, private beaches and surf spots. Watch a “green flash” sunset from the Cliffs where the scenery continues to be “postcard & wedding worthy.” On the North side of Ocean Beach is Robb Field, San Diego Nature Preserve, bike/walking paths & Dog Beach. The asphalt path takes you over/under the bridge to get to Mission Bay, Fiesta Island and runs along the San Diego River into Mission Valley. On the South side of Ocean Beach is Sunset Cliffs Natural Park and further out on “The Point” is Cabrillo National Monument with breathtaking views of all of San Diego, local mountain ranges, Coronado Islands, Mexico and even some occasional whales!
Ocean Beach has a strong sense of community with ongoing weekly and annual events. Wednesday night is the weekly “Farmer’s Market” where local growers sell organic produce & fresh flowers. Vendors also serve food & sell handcrafted items by local artisans. There is always live music and rides for the kids! Special events such as the Holiday Parade, Ocean Beach Street Fair & Chili Cook Off, Fourth of July Fireworks, Oktoberfest, Music Festival & much more are held throughout the year.
