Solana Beach

Highly valued as a family-oriented town with a population of over 12,000 individuals who call this small beach community their home. It is bounded by the Pacific Ocean to the west, Cardiff-by-the-Sea to the north, and the city of Del Mar to the south, making it a strategic location. In addition, Interstate 5 bisects the city into two major sections: the west area, which consists of older, more established beach neighborhoods, and the east side, which features deluxe, high-end homes on large lots.
 
This stunning beach town is characterized by swaying palm trees, red and purple wildflowers, tiled fountains, and fantastic bike riding areas, making it a charming place to live. It's also home to the well-known Belly Up Tavern, Cedros Design & Shopping District, and the neighboring Del Mar Racetrack, providing a nice blend of the prosperous North County and laid-back surf environment. Fletcher Cove, located across from Solana Beach Plaza, is a popular destination for both residents and visitors. The picturesque cove provides volleyball, shuffleboard, basketball, showers, picnic tables, and free public parking. The locals are friendly, the views are stunning, and the entertainment is abundant. Additionally, the Solana Beach Transit Center serves as a station for Amtrak California’s Pacific Surfliner passenger train and the North County Transit District’s COASTER commuter rail route.
