Black’s Beach is not easy to find, and in the process you may get lost, as we did. So one wrong turn and we found a treasure. The dead-end road led up to a walking trail and a view that was amazing. We were on top of the La Jolla sandstone cliffs.

Back on the road searching for Black’s Beach we stopped by Torrey Pines Glider Portt. It is listed as a National Landmark of Soaring and is known by gliding enthusiasts as the “Kitty Hawk of Gliding.”
And now onto the infamous Black’s Beach. Black’s Beach is officially part of the Torrey Pines State Reserve. Torrey Pines State Beach is a 4 1/2 miles stretch of beach. The beach is accessed by a long walk or a steep descent/climb (the stairs seen above at the Torrey Pines Glider Port is one access to the beach). Black’s Beach is located on the northern 1 mile stretch of beach. Nudity is no longer permitted on the south 3 1/2 miles of the beach, but clothing is still optional on Black’s Beach which is known as a nude beach.
