Fodor's Review

Most of the beaches in the little city of Solana Beach are nestled under cliffs, and access is limited to private stairways. However, at the west end of Lomas Santa Fe Drive, where it turns into Plaza Street, there's an entrance to this small beach, along with parking lot, picnic area, playround, and restrooms. The softest sand can be found by the cliffs and it gets a bit courser as you near the water's edge. During low tide it's an easy walk under the cliffs to nearby

beaches, but high tide can make some of the beach impassable. At the northern end of town there are also restrooms, a pay lot, and easy beach access. The City of Solana Beach and the Belly Up Tavern often host free summer concerts at Fletcher Cove (www.cityofsolanabeach.org) and there are plenty of great restaurants nearbye on Highway 101 and on Cedros Avenue. Tides and surf conditions are posted at a kiosk by this parking lot. Amenities: lifeguards, parking (no fee), showers, toilets. Best for: surfing, solitude, swimming, walking.
