San Diego's Ocean Beach

Located in the Ocean Beach Community, Ocean Beach is actually just south of the entrance to the Mission Bay channel. Located at 1950 Abbott Street, the beach is a pretty popular location in the summer. During the winter months, people like to promenade the beach and just bask in the scene.

The Ocean Beach is wide in build and almost a mile long. Along the north end of the beach, you'll find a volleyball court, and during the summer, the court is always teeming with people playing volleyball while the sand around it is swarming with people watching.

The Ocean Beach Municipal Pier is at the south end of the beach. The Pier is open to the public with loads of walking and fishing to take advantage of. Located on the pier is a bait and tackle shop along with a restaurant. Although you don't require a fishing license to fish off the dock, catch regulations are enforced.

If you travel to the south end of the beach you'll find many restaurants, surfing shops, and many other commercial shops and establishments. Although you can travel to the north end of Ocean Beach, it's primarily bordered by residents of the ocean area.

The exclusive part of Ocean Beach is the Dog Beach, sitting at the north end. This sandy area is where dogs can run and play without a leash - anytime - day or night. Even thought dog owners are in charge of their dogs and related clean up, Dog Beach is actually very nice for anyone who owns dogs.

For your well being, all throughout the beach lifeguards are out each and every day, year round. They are normally on duty from 9 AM until dark though you can check with them for their precise hours of operation. They are there for your safety and very willing to answer any question that you may have.

Keep in mind while on the beach, California beaches do experience intense rip currents. It's because of these currents that beaches in California experience over 1,000 rescues by lifeguards every year. To be on the careful side while in San Diego at Ocean Beach, it's always a bright idea to swim near a lifeguard.

For those who like surfing, surfing is permitted at Ocean Beach in certain areas. Scuba isn't recommended however, because of the lack of undersea life, intense rip currents, and the surf.

For swimming or simply enjoying the California lifestyle, Ocean Beach is a great place to go. It is a very well-liked place in the summer, drawing hundreds of thousands of people. If you long for a taste of the California lifestyle, make sure you go see Ocean Beach in San Diego.
