Ocean Beach - A San Diego Neighborhood - 92107


LOCATION: Ocean Beach is a coastal neighborhood located on the northern side of the Point Loma Peninsula. Views abound from many of the homes as the hillside rises from the Pacific Ocean. This neighborhood is west of Interstate 5 and south of Interstate 8.

HOUSING: Homes in Ocean Beach range from beach bungalows, multi-family properties, condominiums and apartments to large, beautiful executive view homes and moderately-sized single-family homes.

HISTORY: The first lots sold in Ocean Beach were sold in 1887 at a mussel roast on the beach. Ocean Beach and Sunset Cliffs are adjacent neighborhoods sharing the same zip code, 92107. It was first established as a resort town and went through many changes as the real estate market bust took its toll on the area in the 1890s. The area was also greatly affected during the stock market crash in 1929. However, Sunset Cliffs really began to thrive in the 1930s and construction continued strongly through the 1950s. Consequently, there are many architecturally important homes in the area.

Present day Ocean Beach has a somewhat eclectic population. Homes range in price from multi-million dollar estates to small one bedroom condominiums.

WEATHER/CLIMATE: This coastal community enjoys a temperate, Mediterranean-like climate. The warmest months, on average, are August/September. The coolest month, on average, is December. The largest amount of precipitation is generally in January. Many residents refer to the coastal fog often experienced in May and June as "May Grey" and "June Gloom."

RECREATION: Residents and visitors to Ocean Beach and Sunset Cliffs enjoy surfing, hiking, checking out the tide pools, jogging, biking, whale watching and more. You won't want to miss the farmer's market every Wednesday on Newport Avenue. The area is home to one of the most beautiful parks, Sunset Cliffs Natural Park. It is a 68-acre resource-based preserve which was dedicated in 1983. The park is located at the end of Sunset Cliffs Boulevard and stretches along the Pacific Ocean.
