Solana Beach | Beaches

True or False: One man used one fire hose to erode away a section of bluff to create Fletcher Cove.

True! Hydraulic water pressure was used to erode away tons of earth and sand to create Fletcher Cove’s access & beach.  It took one man three months using only a fire hose!  You could do these things back in the 1920′s…

When you cruise in to Solana Beach on the 101, you’ll likely notice quite a flurry of  activity – running, cycling, surfers with a surfboard under one arm or balanced on top of their head…   Solana Beach-ians just can’t seem to sit still!  Whether it’s simple personal fitness or triathlon events, in Solana Beach you’ll rarely jog alone.  Nestled between Del Mar & Encinitas, Solana Beach offers a long stretch of beach defined by the rugged beauty of towering bluffs.  With smaller crowds than many surrounding areas, it is a choice vacation destination for those “in the know.”
