Tips from locals
A 45 minute well worth it, beautiful drive to Torrey Pines Reserve. Park on Coast Hwy, not need to pay toll parking. Best to hike the loop at low tide so that you can walk though the sand stone and sage trails and return along the breathtaking sandy beach.
If you are a nature lover, it’s one of the wildest stretches of land left on the Southern California coast! With over 2,000 acres of untouched land, the reserve has long stretches of beachfront, and an amazing lagoon which is home to migrating birds.
A beautiful display of cliffs over looking the Pacific Ocean. Hike, bike, or stroll around Torrey Pines and take-in the fresh ocean air.
Torrey Pines Beach Trail Loop is a 2.3 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near Del Mar, California that offers the chance to see wildlife and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Located within the city limits, it remains one of the wildest landscapes along the Southern California coast, with miles of unspoiled beaches, chaparral, elegant Torrey Pine trees and a lagoon vital to many species of migrating birds.

“If you visit in the month of October children can sometimes go in for free with an adult paid ticket. Check their website to see if they are still offering this major discount. If you are looking to save yourselves a few bucks on food you can pack a lunch and take inside so you don't pay for overpriced meals and buy more souvenirs :)”
