At the Beach
Our sandy back yard is the perfect place to build a castle, search for seashells or swim in the sea. Grab a boogie board or sign up for a surf lesson and learn how to hang ten. Or get a great core workout during a paddleboarding lesson from our resident experts.

Beach Rentals
Boogie boards, volleyballs, wetsuits and surfboards are available for rent. Please inquire at Del Beach or by calling 619-522-8815.

Del Beach
The Del’s full-service “Del Beach” offers luxurious lounge chairs with cushions and terry covers, fringed umbrellas, half-moon cabanettes and plush day beds for full day rental.
