Top 3 luxury beach cities in San Diego

With summer in full force, the cities of Southern California get inundated with visitors from all over.  Perhaps it’s the near-perfect weather (not too hot, not too cold) or the infectious vibe of happy people—but San Diego, at least, can expect many a beach-bound visitor.   And, with 4th of July holiday just around the corner, every piece of shoreline will be packed.  Pick your playground wisely and use our guide to the city’s top, must-see beaches: Coronado This landmark beach community is quite literally postcard picture-perfect.   From the famous Hotel Del Coronado to the mom-and-pop cafes and stores, Coronado is a quaint, little place that offers huge expanses of white beach.  It is family friendly, yet tranquil.  Grab a homemade ice-cream cone and explore the main street or grab a blanket and spread out on the sparkling sand.  This beach is perfect for low-key relaxation. Coronado La Jolla Glitz and glamour abound—La Jolla, quite simply “The Jewel”—is just that.  A gem of a beach city, it boasts some of the best restaurants, shops and scenery in San Diego.  Walk through its meandering streets to fulfill every window shopping whim or wander through any of the several art galleries.  Treat yourself to Pacific Rim fare at George’s at the Cove and follow up with a walk down the shore so you don’t miss the fat and happy neighborhood seals, nearby.  There is so much to do in La Jolla and just as many coves, cliffs and bits of beach to choose from once the ocean starts to beckon! La Jolla Del Mar This strip of a beach neighborhood offers boutiques and restos ripe with Americana charm.  Stroll down the street to take in the sights and then share a meal at one of the handful of restaurants right on the water.  Afterwards, a walk on the beach will make for the true dessert of the evening—a little wading during sunset is good for the soul.
