Sandy Vacations in Carlsbad and La Jolla

A Getaway on the San Diego Coast

Carlsbad State Beach

A getaway is best spent on the coast of San Diego. From surfing to fishing, and everything in between, you can spend your time at the Carlsbad State Beach. Framed by the roaring Pacific Ocean and beautiful coastal bluffs, this beach is about to become your new favorite spot in the Golden State.

Splash around in the ocean during a hot day in Carlsbad, or lay out in the dazzling California sun. Each day from sunrise to sunset, you and your family may picnic, scuba dive, sunbath and play volleyball. Want to learn how to surf? Hook up with So Cal Surf for public lessons from May throughout August. Brought your bike? Miles of pathway stretch above the beach along the bluffs – perfect for dog walking, cycling or a leisurely stroll along the beachfront.

A California State Park, Carlsbad State Beach is found along Carlsbad Boulevard, just north of San Diego. The beach is set less than a mile from the Best Western hotel in Carlsbad, with a number of nearby Best Western hotels found in Escondido, Encinitas and Oceanside. Accompanied by a multitude of Best Western hotels in San Diego, your stay in southern California is filled with sunny days and comfortable nights.

La Jolla Shores Beach

Beaches in the San Diego metropolitan area are not hard to come by – although some do stand above the rest. Join the other happy vacationers at La Jolla Shores Beach – a mile-long sandy escape set in the beautiful La Jolla. Southern California doesn’t get much better than the surfing, swimming and scuba diving found on these family-friendly shores.

The picnic tables and playgrounds are a favorite to visitors of La Jolla Shores Beach, as well are the volleyball courts and the many comfortable spots for sunbathing. The waves of the beach are known for their mild behavior, so small children and beginning surfers may enter the Pacific Ocean with ease. Kayaking is a popular activity, as well as lounging by the fire rings come dusk. Pets on a leash are welcome in the early hours until 9 a.m., and if you didn’t pack a picnic, lunch can be found at nearby eateries at Avenida de la Playa.

The La Jolla Shores Beach means an unforgettable sunny escape along the San Diego coast. Gear up for your fun-filled beach day and remember – the Best Western hotel in La Jolla is less than three miles away. With Best Western lodging options as close as Del Mar and as far as Chula Vista, your trip to San Diego is all covered.
