    Del Mar delights in deluxe

    Del Mar, with its sandy-cliffed beaches, sweeping views, and rolling Pacific breakers, is certainly "of the sea." It's also a place where San Diego comes to dream. Its streets are jeweled with aspirational boutiques and sublime restaurants. And at its heart is the fabled Del Mar Race Track. Here, you can watch horses power their way to victory or obscurity, while the well-heeled promenade and fortunes are fluttered. But for most people booking their Del Mar vacation rentals, this North County headland village is simply the SoCal beach experience at its sun-splashed best.

    Days to indulge in Del Mar

    With its reputation as a hang-out for the famous and well-to-do, much of what you can do in Del Mar revolves around high-life indulgence. So, if you're staying at one of the many top-rated Del Mar vacation rentals, you'll have a perfectly formed romantic break. Long walks with ocean-swashed vistas beckon, followed by afternoons of boutique store bliss. There are always spa specialists to ease any retail exertions away. And evenings here can be a chinking of wine glasses and fine dining—Del Mar restaurants are renowned for their quality and diversity.

    Del Mar—from racing thrills to pine-scented trails

    If you can drag yourself away from the simple pleasures of surf and sand—or the upscale retail pleasures found along the main strand of Camino Del Mar—then the "thrill of the horses" calls. All summer long, the Del Mar Race Track is alive with the spectacle and glamor of thorough-bred horse-racing. Del Mar's stunning ocean views are laid out before you at the magnificently manicured Seagrove Park. But a wilder vista can be had at the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve Extension. Here, you'll discover trails threading through beautifully sculpted sandstone and rare twisted pines.

    Summer time perfection in Del Mar

    Summer is the high season for those on the look-out for Del Mar vacation rentals. With temperatures sitting at a pleasant 75°F throughout the summer months—warmed by sunshine that's rarely broken—it's easy to see why. Perfect for a beach-side promenade or a main street stroll-and-shop, you'll find the aircon is rarely on at Del Mar vacation rentals. If you're wanting to have Del Mar more to yourself, then the winter months are your best bet. Not only are the beaches and streets quiet, but the weather is still sunny and mild, too.

    A host of natural wonders in Del Mar

    Sitting just north of where the Carmel Valley opens out onto the Pacific, Ocean Del Mar is one of the best-located beach resorts north of San Diego. Not only are there miles of pristine sands fronting onto the ocean, but the town itself sits on a headland with fabulous views. Best of all, if you want to explore the beauty of the landscape then the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve Extension lies just south of Del Mar. It is home to over half of the endangered Torrey Pines, and is wonderfully spangled with wildflowers after rainfall.
