San Diego, California

Surf Scripps Pier

Originally added by Kat Carney

Gorgeous clear waters near tide pools. Perfect for a sunset surf session.

Park on La Jolla Shores Drive and make the short walk down the boat ramp north of the pier. This spot often has some of the clearest waters in San Diego, making it a picturesque place to surf. During low tide, check out the tide pools just north of the surf spot to find some awesome sea life.
