Del Mar

Del Mar, Spanish for “by the sea,” is a beautiful beach city situated just 20 miles north of downtown San Diego. The coastline is defined by stunning sandstone cliffs and canyons above the beaches. Its beaches include the dog-friendly River Mouth (often called Dog Beach), north Del Mar City Beach, and south Del Mar City Beach.


The downtown area, called The Village, combines the charm of a quaint European small town and coastal sophistication. It draws visitors from across the world with its fine dining, boutique hotels, shopping, and world-class beaches. Each Saturday, a farmer’s market is held in the Village.

The city is home to the Del Mar Fairgrounds, a 370-acre event venue nestled across from the San Dieguito Lagoon. The fairgrounds are home to the world-famous Del Mar racetrack, which hosts horse racing between July and September each year. Opening Day at the racetrack is a big event every year with a hat contest. There are hundreds of other events held at the fairgrounds each year, including the San Diego County Fair, Del Mar National Horse Show, and concerts.


Del Mar is served by the highly rated Del Mar Union School District, with nine K-6 schools. Middle schools and high schools are provided by the San Dieguito Union High School District. Private schools serving the community include the Winston School and Sea Change Preparatory.


Del Mar is home to luxury residences perched on the cliffs with spectacular views over the Pacific Ocean and the lagoons. In the more inland areas of the community, smaller streets wind up through the hills.
