SAN DIEGO FANATIC
A great little beach community full of good restaurants and bars. Also it has a great beach plus the Crystal Pier, great boardwalk and some good surf in a few places.(for surfing boarding)
Head to Garnet and you'll see all the cars and bars near the beach. PB is good for whatever you want to do. A very family friendly beach if you're with children. At night it can get a little crazy.
For people who are more likely to put on flip flops than shoes, this is the place for them.
Restaurants? PB has everything. Take your pick. For bars? Cass Street Bar and Grill is always a favorite. PB Bar and Grill is fun as well. There are many coffee shops as well.
Cafe 976 is a personal favorite. (wifi)
