Imperial Beach Area

Imperial Beach is a beautiful and quiet beach town that offers visitors miles of unspoiled coastline and endless activities to make your vacation truly unforgettable. The stunning beaches here are safe for swimming and offers lifeguards. Our famous San Diego Imperial Beach pier is the perfect location for taking a stroll, fishing, or taking in a California Coast sunset. Our beach is very well known for its surf and celebrated local shapers and designers. As you walk through our pristine streets, you can take in the Outdoor surfboard museum where you will find full-size silhouettes of surfboards from over 25 well-known surfboard shapers.

Because we are located just five miles northwest of Mexico, we suggest visiting the protected wetlands of the Tijuana Estuary to surround yourself with nature. Here you can enjoy nature walks, bird watching and calling, and native plants. Located within the Tijuana Estuarine, you will find Boarder Field State Park which is the perfect location to enjoy bird watching, hiking, picnicking, and horseback riding. We are home to the iconic bicycle rout called Bayshore Bikeway. This 26-mile span of bikeway encircles the San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge and is a must do for cyclists visiting the area.
