Down the hill from Point Loma you will find Voltaire Street dead-ending into the beach parking lot where most beachgoers congregate. This is where you will find Voltaire Street Beach. Not only does this street give you direct access to one of the area’s most popular beaches, but Voltaire is also lined with a slew of bars, restaurants, stores and other mom and pop type shops for your enjoyment.
This beach is popular amongst visitors as it is not nearly as busy or crowded as Mission or Pacific Beach. Voltaire Street Beach is also a local hotspot where one can find a parking spot and hit the sand for a few hours. There is also a large grassy area with picnic tables for visitors to enjoy as well.
While Voltaire Street Beach is a favorite amongst locals, it is also one of the busiest beaches in San Diego County. There are many reasons this beach is so popular. This beach is considerably larger than some of the others so there is plenty of room for visitors. The large parking lot is a huge bonus as well as the public showers and restrooms for the beachgoers to enjoy.
Dog Beach is adjacent to this beach so you can share the day with your furry friends also if you like. The Ocean Beach bike path which ends at the beach is also popular and often times you will find visitors soaking up the sights from the end of the path overlooking the beach.
