Welcome to Pacific Beach
A dynamic, casual beach community popular with sunbathers and surfers, Pacific Beach is located between Mission Beach to the south and La Jolla to the north.
The community is known for its long stretch of sandy beach and iconic surfing spots that appeal to both beginners and seasoned surfers. PB, as the locals call it, serves up a laid-back aloha vibe appealing to a mix of young and old, and everything in between.
Enjoy a stroll on the famous Crystal Pier built-in 1927. Look away from the beach and you will find diverse neighborhoods and the grassy slopes of Kate Session Park with its panoramic views of the city, San Diego Bay, and the gleaming Pacific Ocean.
Pacific Beach is one of San Diego's oldest suburbs established in 1887. The PB Women's Club, formed in 1888, still meets today, was founded by internationally acclaimed poet Rose Hartwick Thorpe, and claims to be the first such organization in the nation.
