Roast- Private Beach Bonfires

Bonfires on the beach have long been a favorite tradition at The Del, and now the toes-in-the-sand, fireside experience has gone gourmet. Guests cozy up around the fire in sand chairs and choose from an a la carte menu, including s’mores, cheese & charcuterie boards and fireside franks. One fire pit accommodates up to 10 guests.

This is the only San Diego spot where guests can order up tropical cocktails and local craft brews, along with delicious beach fare, with their toes in the sand.


Movies on the Beach

Snuggle up on Del Beach for our favorite summer movies in a theater under the stars. Guests may cuddle up around a private bonfire with s’mores and relax in a beach daybed or rent beach chairs.
