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.

Ice Skate on the Beach in Coronado

An ice skating rink is put up this time of year overlooking the ocean on Coronado Island. If you cannot get enough of the water, this is the way to enjoy it all without getting cold and wet. Unless you fall on the ice. 😛

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. Get a running start, at sunrise or sunset, there are always many wetsuit ridden surfers in the sea to catch a wave with.


The surfers and the whales take to the sea this time of year. Get a wave from one of our majestic mammal friends by booking a whale watching tour. There are deals as low s $13 to have this once in a lifetime experience!


La Jolla Cove Kayak

Capture some serenity in San Diego’s revered La Jolla cove by taking 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.
