Solana-Beach is located along the northern coast of San Diego County. It started as a farming community with gorgeous bluffs overlooking the ocean, but with no beach access. Later on, a gap was cut out in the bluffs, providing access to the ocean. Three small beaches are now located in Solana Beach, but due to the crashing surf, they are better suited to surfers and bodyboarders than to sunbathers. Fletcher Cove, located at Solana Beach Plaza has a wonderful little cobblestone beach with a park that overlooks the ocean. Tide Beach Park is a good place to explore tidepools and is also known for its snorkeling. South of Fletcher's Cove is Seascape Shores, which also offers beach access. The beautiful little town of Solana Beach is known for its shopping, with a mix of interesting art galleries and boutiques, furniture shops, surfing outfitters, as well as large retail giants. Solana Beach holds a weekly Farmer's Market every Sunday with a large assortment of farm fresh produce, baked goods, locally grown flowers and fruits of the season. The market is located across from the Solana Beach train station and adjacent to the Cedros Design District shopping district. Interstate 5 and Highway 101 run through Solana Beach, giving it easy access to the cities of San Diego, Encinitas and Del Mar.

Solana Beach 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.
