​​​​​​​Welcome to Solana Beach

Charming small town with convenient San Diego access.

Solana Beach is an inviting beach town located between Encinitas and Del Mar on North San Diego County’s Pacific coast. “Solana” roughly translates to “sun spot” in English, and this gorgeous stretch of sun-kissed coast certainly lives up to its name. Solana Beach is well connected to San Diego, with The Pacific Surfliner and COASTER rail links and Interstate 5 bisecting the community. But while its transportation links place it within 30 minutes of downtown San Diego, Solana Beach has a distinctly small-town vibe and the feel of a self-contained beach community.

Solana Beach real estate
is a varied mix. Suburban neighborhoods of single-family housing and modern construction tend to characterize the market east of I-5, while the western half of the city is home to lavish oceanfront estates, luxurious houses for sale Solana Beach CA and upmarket condominiums.

People & Lifestyle

Attractive beaches and convenient San Diego access mean Solana Beach sees a steady stream of visitors throughout the year. Those who live here quickly adapt to living in what locals call the “Solana Bubble.” Residents refer to Solana Beach’s main shopping strip as “The Avenue with Everything.” With good restaurants, a few hip nightlife spots, and a wonderful outdoor lifestyle, most discover that Solana Beach is a place they never want to leave.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

A two-and-a-half block stretch of Cedros Avenue is known as the Cedros Design District bordering the train tracks in downtown Solana Beach. It boasts a unique assortment of fashion boutiques, art galleries, chic cafes, and other exclusive independently run businesses housed in quirky 1940’s-style Quonset huts. Cedros Design District is the home of Belly Up, a legendary music venue that has brought a who’s who of up-and-coming artists to Solana Beach since it opened in 1974. Restaurants along Cedros Avenue include Claire’s delectable fresh Californian comfort food. Plus there are more than 50 restaurants and retailers can be found at Solana Beach Towne Centre, ranging from nationally known brands to independent local retailers, such as the organic Sprouts Farmers Market.

Things to Do

Solana Beach’s sandy oceanfront extends over 1.8 unbroken miles. While physically contiguous, Solana Beach’s coastline is comprised of the distinct beaches of Tide Beach Park, Fletcher Cove, and Seascape Sur. Tide Park Beach is appropriately named as it is full of tide pools that are home to crabs, octopuses, and other ocean creatures. Fletcher Cove is the most central of the beaches, with an adjacent park providing sports courts and children’s play areas. Seascape Sur is Solana’s main surfing and bodyboarding spot. Del Mar Fairgrounds is located just beyond Solana Beach’s southern boundary. The Fairgrounds has a racetrack and hosts the popular San Diego County Fair.


Solana Beach is zoned to the Solana Beach Elementary and San Dieguito Union High School Districts.​​​​​
