San Diego is also perfect if you want to have access to some of the other major parts of California. We are two hours away from Los Angeles. A short hour and 30 minute drive from Riverside. For your outdoor and hiking needs we are within 3 hours from both Joshua Tree and the infamous Big Bear Lake. Weekend getaways are a no brainer when you’re based in San Diego.


Sunny San Diego!! With 24 different beaches in the small city, the environment is always a vibe. The San Diego’s beach scene is unmatched. Infamous for the surf and the waves, San Diego’s beaches will never disappoint. You will also come across sand volleyball, dogs playing fetch, and some dope food along the coastline.

Each beach offers a different experience. If you want to meditate and have a relaxing early morning or late evening, head over to Sunset Beach. If you want some action and access to food, shoot over to mission beach where you can also find our ITH Beach Bungalow Surf Hostel for accommodation.
