What are considered the most romantic places in San Diego can vary from person to person, but it’s no secret it’s an exceptionally romantic city with beautiful sunsets, incredible vistas, world-class dining, arts, culture and miles of beach walks. Whatever you choose to do, San Diego offers plenty of opportunities to create loving and lasting memories. This list of romantic options is just the beginning!

Cruise the ocean. Enjoy a romantic dinner on a sunset cruise along the coast with views of the Pacific Ocean, the harbor and downtown San Diego. Watch planes land and take off, and if you’re lucky you may catch dolphins playing in the surf and sea lions relaxing on buoys and rocks along the shore.

Go to the beach. Spend a few relaxing hours at one of San Diego’s 31 public beaches with a picnic lunch and a walk holding hands along the shore. Watch surfers and bodyboarders defy aquatic gravity and visit tidepools to see tiny creatures in their natural habitats.

Head to La Jolla Cove. A small cove surrounded by picturesque sandstone bluffs, La Jolla Cove is a popular area for a sunset beach stroll, stunning crystal clear Pacific water, panoramic ocean views, snorkeling, swimming and kayaking.

Act like a tourist. With so many world-class attractions in the area, spend a day at the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, Coronado Island, the Midway Aircraft Museum or any of the many other sites people visit from around the world.

Take a leisurely stroll: Walk through the beautiful gardens at Balboa Park or wander through Little Italy, a charming neighborhood packed with delicious cafes. Head to the historic Gaslamp district for dining and shopping or meander along the harbor front to admire the boats moored in the marina and at sea.
