Del Mar is known for one thing— its amazing beaches. Even its name is synonymous with the shore, as Del Mar is Spanish for "by the sea." So if you're ready to hang ten on Southern California's world-famous coast, there's no better place to be. Staying here doesn't mean that you have to be far away from the big city. When you stay at hotels in Del Mar, you're only a quick drive away from San Diego.
Visiting Del Mar
Once you arrive at San Diego International Airport, you've almost made it to the sandy beaches of Del Mar. Reserve an airport shuttle, and you can be en route as soon as you land. Public transportation is another option. Take a bus from Terminal 1 to San Diego-Santa Fe Depot, and then hop aboard the Coaster train heading toward Oceanside. You can also take a taxi or rent a car to get to your Del Mar motel in approximately 30 minutes.
If the first thing you want to do when you get to Del Mar is hit the surf, it's no problem. You can rent a car in Del Mar to drive to Del Mar City Beach; one of the best in SoCal. Stay all day, and you'll likely be treated to a gorgeous sunset. To see something a little more out of the ordinary, check out nearby Seagrove Park. It's only a short walk away from Del Mar City Beach and gives you the perfect vantage point to watch the surfers catching waves. You should also make the trip to see "America's Finest City"— after all, San Diego isn't very far. See the sights and spend the night in one of the many great San Diego hotels.
