California's Torrey Pines Beach Trail

Beach Lovers Will Fall For This Stunning Coastal California Trail

By Mina Elwell


If you want to enjoy gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean from a beautiful stretch of California's coastline, look no further than the Torrey Pines Beach Trail Loop.
This hike is about an hour long and is particularly gorgeous at dusk, with pink light reflecting off the ocean and flooding across the rocky landscape.
The trail down to the beach begins relatively flat and easy, with stellar views of jagged rock formations around you and the ocean below stretching out into the horizon.
You'll have to tackle some steep switchbacks, including stairs cut into the cliffside. When you reach the bottom, you'll be treated to gorgeous blue waves and tide pools.
