Bonsall is a small town of approximately 3,400 in San Diego County that lies northeast of Oceanside just off Highway 76. This is an ideal location for family wanting to visit the San Diego area attractions, but away from the crowds and noise. Just a short drive takes you to the white sandy beaches and the longest wooden pier on the West Coast in Oceanside. Activities include swimming, sunning, surfing, sailing, fishing off the pier and deep-sea fishing. An oceanside bluff provides trails for hiking and biking that go all the way from Oceanside to San Clemente. Other attractions in the area include the Harbor Village Lighthouse, the largest historic Spanish mission in the whole state of California, the Oceanside Surf Museum, the Sea Center and the Oceanside Art Museum. In addition, you are only about 30 minutes to San Diego Sea World and 60 minutes from Disneyland. All types of restaurants and lodging are available in and around Bonsall, making it a convenient, affordable vacation destination.

Bonsall Weather & Climate

Sunshine almost every day and winters that are mild and free of snow attract millions to the southern California coastline, between Los Angeles and San Diego, every year. The climate is mostly classified as Mediterranean with winters being just a few degrees cooler than summers. There is little to no rain from May through September or October, which is great for outdoors activities, but bad for fire danger. Fog and low clouds usually hug the coastline in the summertime in the late evening and the wee hours of the morning, but burns off by midday. The rainy season generally runs November through March or sometimes April. Thunderstorms are infrequent and light. As you move further inland away from the cooling effect of the ocean breezes, temperatures become warmer with more variation between summer and winter.
