Welcome to your guide to San Diego winter travel. Don’t let the cold weather and pandemic keep you from having fun this winter!
HIKE TORREY PINES OR BLACKS BEACH
With the weather not too hot or too cold in the middle of the day it is the perfect time to hit the trails in San Diego. Torrey Pines and Blacks Beach are an exquisite blend of woods that meet the beach and allow for a refreshing day out in the sun without sweating to death. Grab your flops, your friends, some good coffee, and a cold one, and set out for a day of relaxing fun.
BIG WAVE SURFING
If you are the type that wants to put on a wetsuit and hit the waves, this is the right place at the right time. San Diego is known for its massive waves during the winter months, and our ITH Beach Bungalow Surf Hostel is a great place to get started. Here we offer an UNBEATABLE VIEW of the beach, wet suits, and boards for rental. Get a running start, at sunrise or sunset, there are always many sandy-haired and up-beat surfers in the sea to catch a wave with.
The surfers and the whales take to the sea this time of year, because of their seasonal migration. Get a wave from one of our majestic mammal friends by booking going whale watching! Unfortunately, guys, official boat tours are closed in conjunction with COVID regulations; but we’ve got you covered with our Guide To San Diego Whale Watching article.
LA JOLLA COVE KAYAK
Capture some serenity in San Diego’s revered La Jolla cove. Take a kayaking excursion away from the shoreline and out toward the stillness beyond the waves. The seals may swim out to join you and escape the bustle of the busy shops and spectators. It all dies away out at sea, and you really get to experience the peace of the open waters.
While some of the usual outdoor activities like cruises and ice skating in Coronado are closed due to COVID-19, one of the things that San Diego can offer you (that not even COVID-19 can defeat) is it’s amazingly beautiful scenery. From urban art to the downtown city views and the spacious mountain ranges to beaches with the most beautiful horizons ever; grab your camera and a buddy and go take some shots around the city. This place offers views like you’ve never seen before!
