Welcome to Del Mar
Where the surf meets the turf. Since the legendary days of Hollywood’s golden years, Del Mar has been the destination of choice for many movie stars as well as those with a taste for fast horses, beautiful beaches, and award-winning cuisine.
This seaside community is defined by the racetrack located at the north end of the community, the wide stretches of beach, and the quaint Village area straddling the historic Highway 101.
What to Expect
Del Mal residents are a unique blend of beach lovers who also thrive on the equestrian and ranch heritage of San Diego.
This blending of beach and turf is defined by the rugged cliffs that rise from the Pacific Ocean to dramatic, tree-lined landscapes where homes are nestled.
The residents of Del Mar feel a sense of responsibility for the environment, their community, and the lifestyle they cherish. The beaches and the race track may attract visitors from around the world, but when you stroll the beaches and the shops that line the historic 101, you see and feel the local presence of pride of community and history.
Del Mar is a sophisticated, upscale community of San Diego that was originally established as a resort destination for the rich and famous. In 1937 the Del Mar Racetracks was opened by a group of investors led by Bing Crosby.
