On Pt. Loma’s west side is the Ocean Beach neighborhood, home to many activities such as sunbathing, surfing, fishing, sailing, shopping, and pier strolling - or in just a simple term: lots of fun in the sun!
Though San Diego's Ocean Beach is located across the bay within view of the popular Sea World theme park, visitors might never see this friendly beach neighborhood known as "OB". Located about 7 miles west of downtown, it is home to the southernmost public beach on the Point Loma peninsula.
2 other San Diego beach favorites, Pacific Beach and Mission Beach, usually draw a larger and different crowd. Even though many have tried to turn Ocean Beach into a similar commercial success, it's geographic location makes it less accessible, and ultimately, more popular to locals. With SeaWorld just two miles away, and within view from Ocean Beach, there's a lot to love about San Diego's neighborhood with its own events, associations, and personality that's slightly beach funky.
