Black’s Beach

2800 Torrey Pines Scenic Dr. La Jolla, CA 92037

La Jolla’s most infamous beach, where getting there is an adventure on its own, and clothing is optional. Once there, you’ll enjoy its 2-mile stretch of gorgeous golden black sands, towering bluffs, prime surf, and hang gliders soaring above you. The clothing-optional stretch of beach is within the northernmost part, one mile north of the Torrey Pines trail staircase. Also, be prepared to get your heart racing for the journey back up– it’s steep, so pack light!
