Pacific Beach Community Info
Pacific Beach is a seaside neighborhood within the city of San Diego; La Jolla is located to the north, Mission Beach to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west. A popular location for surfers, and college students, the population is becoming older, more professional, and more affluent due to rising property and rental costs. “P.B.,” as it is known as by local residents, is home to one of San Diego’s larger nightlife scenes, with many bars, eateries, and clothing stores.
A golden beach in Pacific Beach stretches for miles from the Mission Bay jetty to the cliffs of La Jolla. A sidewalk, the boardwalk, running along the beach, is typically crowded with pedestrians, cyclists, rollerbladers, and shoppers. The beach scene revolves around Crystal Pier, which is at the west end of Garnet Avenue.
