What you should know about Del Mar

Stunning cliff-top views, high-end boutiques, and award-winning restaurants—it's no wonder that Del Mar is a byword for luxury in San Diego. Its pine-dotted beaches are some of the prettiest on a coast renowned for fabulous strands. Add in a near-perfect clime of year-round sunshine and warmth (along with the thrill of the horses at the Del Mar Race Track) and you'll see why the well-heeled and famous flock to this exclusive headland village in North County.

Hotels in Del Mar

If you're wanting a spot of indulgence in your visit to San Diego, the accommodation in Del Mar won't disappoint. There's a great choice on the luxury side of things here. L'Auberge Del Mar holds pride of place, a sumptuous five-star hotel in Del Mar’s 'The Village.' Further south, the highly rated San Diego Marriott Del Mar offers classy decor, superb service, and great views of the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. There are plenty of less pricey, but still well-appointed Del Mar hotels along the Camino del Mar too—such as the popular Clarion Inn, with its romantic ocean vistas.

Things to see in Del Mar

Natural splendor is one thing you can't avoid seeing here, while The Village itself is a marvel of charming resort architecture. Seagrove Park showcases Del Mar's views to their best, but don't forget to explore the nature trails of the Torrey Pines Extension and State Natural Reserve. There is plenty else to see in this swanky neighborhood away from the great outdoors—starting with the illustrious Del Mar Race Track. This hosts thoroughbred racing during the summer, and many other events at the Del Mar Fairgrounds during the rest of the year. The Del Mar Plaza open-air retail complex is definitely the place to see, and be seen, in Del Mar though. It offers a real luxury shopping experience, hosting The Village's most exclusive boutiques and stores. And when the shopping is done, fine dining and superb ocean views can be had at one of its first-class restaurants.

Good for Couples and Luxury-seekers

Many come to Del Mar to experience a little of its famous high life. But this is also a resort perfectly made for romantic breaks, with a fabulous setting and the trappings of affluence. Stay at one of the many luxury hotels in Del Mar and you can have it all—long walks along scenic beaches, retail indulgence in distinctive boutiques, or sampling the finest of foods in outstanding restaurants. Plus the thrill of the horses at the Del Mar Race Track adds a dash of excitement and glamor to any stay here, romantic or not.

How to get to Del Mar

Del Mar lies 20 miles north of central San Diego, just off the I-5. Those flying into San Diego International Airport are probably best off hiring a car at the airport—Del Mar is then less than 30 minutes' drive away. There is the romantic option of taking the Pacific Surfliner train, but you'll need to get a taxi to the Old Town Transit Center at the airport. Then you'll need a taxi at the other end—the train only stops at Solana Beach, about 5 minutes' drive from Del Mar. For travel in Del Mar itself, the neighborhood’s small size makes walking a real pleasure for getting around.
