Welcome to Del Mar

Del Mar is a quaint seaside village rich in history, striking natural beauty, and European charm. Located just 20 miles north of Downtown San Diego on the Southern California coastline, Del Mar Village is unique in its offering of a vibrant small-town atmosphere, sprawling natural playground along the Pacific Ocean, and the casual sophistication of a world-class destination.
 
First renowned during the golden era of the movie industry, Del Mar was the retreat for Hollywood’s biggest movie stars who came to enjoy its peaceful ambiance, pristine beaches, and exhilarating thoroughbred horse racing. Today, the affluent and historic Del Mar Village attracts visitors from across the globe seeking breathtaking vistas, stunning sandstone canyons, beach activities, horse racing, and award-winning cuisine with spectacular ocean views.
 
Visitors can experience Del Mar Village without ever needing to get in a car. The collection of unique, independent shops, outdoor cafes, and boutique hotels, many in half-timbered, Tudor-style buildings, is accessible on foot throughout the heart of the Village. Del Mar Village is also easily navigated on a bicycle and the beaches are dog-friendly.

Del Mar is where the turf meets the surf! The renowned Del Mar Fairgrounds is home to the excitement of thoroughbred horse racing during the racing season and the hugely popular San Diego County Fair which kicks off the start of summer. Nearby attractions include the famed Torrey Pines Golf Course, home to the US Open and Farmers Insurance Open, the world-famous San Diego Zoo and Safari Park, Torrey Pines State Preserve, and Legoland.
