Del Mar means “by the sea” in Spanish, and it is very well-named. Stretching several miles up the coast, Del Mar is one of the most beautiful areas in all of San Diego. It is located between Torrey Pines and Solana Beach on the North coast, and is directly off of I-5. Homes in this area start around $800,000 and go up into the tens of millions.
Residents of Del Mar enjoy easy access to over two miles of beach, with many homes backing directly onto the beach. The main street of Del Mar Village is the heart of Del Mar, offering an abundance of high-end shopping and dining. The rest of Del Mar includes numerous parks, the famous Del Mar Fairgrounds, and access to the stunning Torrey Pines State Reserve.
The Del Mar Union school district is one of the best in the area and includes 8 elementary schools. Del Mar is a very safe neighborhood, with one of the lowest crime rates in San Diego County.
