Just steps from Above The Beach is Palisades Park Beach, one of San Diego's best surfing spots and family beaches.

Early mornings, you will have the opportunity to rise with the locals and bring your coffee cup over to the cliffs to watch early morning surfers. If early mornings are not your thing, blend with the locals and join the yogis who practice yoga on the cliffs around 9:30 and again late afternoons.

The lessons are on a donation basis and are designed for beginners as well as super experts. Afternoons, on windy days, you will see the colorful kite surfers who maneuver their boards and kites with extreme dexterity. Nightly, on the cliffs of Palisades Park, you will watch the stunning sunsets with other locals who gather as the sun goes down.

The “Boardwalk” begins here at Palisades Park and extends for over three miles down to the jetty.

Action on the Boardwalk begins in the early morning with walkers, runners, cyclists with their beach cruisers, and skate boarders getting their morning exercise. Others, just wanting the serenity of watching the ocean are found sitting on the many benches overlooking the ocean. Coffee shops, bars and restaurants dot the Boardwalk and fill up fast particularly on holidays or during football season.

The Boardwalk also is home to Crystal Pier where fishing poles and bait are ready for all (no license required).
Those “Home Bodies” who prefer to hang out “At The Beach” while sipping coffee/wine on their own private patio, can enjoy the patio bar overlooking the animated street and ocean views: From the privacy of your own residence, you will see the animation of North Pacific Beach: neighbors, surfers, cyclists, daring skate boarders, dog walkers and beach goers all pass by bringing a slice of life to this constantly changing video.

And for those family members who seriously need a retreat, Above The Beach offers a spacious patio with BBQ, outdoor seating and dining table and fabulous ocean views.

If you are in the mood for shopping, Garnet Ave is where you will go. The stores are more geared to the younger crowd and contemporary fun clothing, costume jewelry, shoes, etc, not to say that those over 60 cannot find a frill or two. Garnet is also home to ice cream shops, bars and tattoo businesses that Pacific Beach (PB) is known for. The most frequented store by far is Pangaea
Outpost where locals rent spaces and sell a variety of entertaining gifts and wear. Just off Garnet (near Pangaea) on Tuesdays is the PB Farmers Market from 2-6:30.

Throughout Pacific Beach, on the Boardwalk and dotted throughout the community and on into Mission Beach, you will find surfing schools as well as aquatic centers which offer daily and weekly courses for all ages. These schools have excellent programs/camps for children. Enroll early!

Bayside offers additional water related activities (paddle boarding/kayaking/jet packing) at or near the Catamaran. Moms and Dads will find Fanuel Park a great place to take their youngsters who will enjoy the swinging on the swings, climbing the jungle-gyms, and riding the cement dolphins as well as playing in the calm of the Bayside waters. Bayside is also a great place for families to bike ride since the crowds are a bit less than on the Boardwalk.

Golfers will find their paradise in the nearby golf courses: Mission Beach Municipal Golf Course (by the I-5) as well as Torrey Pines public course. For those wanting a challenging course, Balboa Golf Course, adjacent to Balboa Park is another fine option.
North Pacific Beach and particularly Above The Beach offers a low-density area with tranquil, spacious outdoor living and the amenities of your own home, all while being planted in a vibrant, hip area of San Diego.

North Pacific Beach borders La Jolla (Birdrock) on the North and Mission Beach on the South.

Our neighborhood is inhabited primarily by locals and has only a few vacation rentals. The neighbors are respectful and friendly and appreciate having neighbors who enjoy the low density and lack of nighttime noise, reserving the evening for rest and relaxation. We ask that those staying at Above The Beach respect the neighbors and evening curfews.
