Pacific-Beach is a picturesque, beachside community of San Diego, nestled between Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Located on the north end of San Diego, Pacific Beach is just a couple of minutes to Sea World and 5 minutes to Old Town San Diego. For visitors, this convenient location is just 15 minutes from the airport, along the I-5 corridor. Pacific Beach has a population of approximately 40,000, and is filled with surf shops, beach rental equipment stores, restaurants and cafes, nightclubs featuring everything from rock to jazz, and more than twenty affordable hotels and motels. With its close proximity to the Bay and the Ocean, no other place is better suited for swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, jet skiing, boating, fishing and windsurfing. It's also a great place just to relax and enjoy sunning and beachcombing. Nearby Sail Bay is a peaceful inlet where you can rent paddleboats and sail boats, or ride an old-fashioned sternwheeler. The community of Pacific Beach is host to an annual "Beachfest," a seaside festival held in October along the boardwalk next to the historic pier, that features arts and crafts, lots of delicious food, games, live music and fireworks. Pacific Beach, of course, enjoys the same great weather year round as San Diego, and is near other attractions such as the San Diego Zoo, the historic Spanish missions, Wild Animal Park, Legoland, the Birch Aquarium, Balboa park and all the trendy shops and art galleries of La Jolla.

Pacific Beach Weather & Climate

Extreme Southern California,  in the San Diego area, enjoys a beautiful, mild climate year round. January is generally the coldest and wettest month of the year, and August is usually the warmest month. In actuality, however, there is very little variation throughout the year in temperature in the coastal region, except when easterly winds off the desert pushes the temperature up a few degrees. The dry season runs May through September with very little measurable precipitation during this time. October is a transitional month, and is usually dry but can have variable weather. Fog and low clouds along the coast are common, but usually burn off by noon. A marked feature of the climate in this region is the wide variation within a short distance due to the topography of the area. Visitors can enjoy a coastal climate, mountains and desert all within a day's drive of each other.
