Chula Vista Off The Beaten Path: 7 reviews and 10 photos
While staying in Chula Vista the nearest beach is located in Imperial Beach which is a little over four miles southwest.
I.B. is a surfing and swimming beach with a small beachside collection of restaurants and motels. Actually, I'd say it's a bare and basic beach. Not really a stunning place but offers a great history of California surfing and it has long been a favorite training ground for serious surfers.
The peir is a favorite fishing hole and a license is not required so any spur of the moment decision can be fulfilled. If you haven't brought your fishing gear there is a place just across the street which will help you out. Fishing not your thing? The pier offers a nice, safe walk out over the ocean and at the end is a small restaurant to have a meal or just refresh yourself with a drink.
Speaking of drinking, there is a sports bar & grill, The I.B. Forum which is the last southwestern place in the Continental USA for a drink! If you're into ultimates this is a recommended stop. A little further on you'll find the
Tijuana Sloughs and the Tijuana Estuary if things of nature trip your trigger.
This is not a pretentious city and if you're looking for the typical resort type amenities, you'll not find them here. Just a casual time at the beach and a bit more.
Evidently I.B. is moving in the direction of turning it's beach area into a resort community beach. %:[http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/p/m/64154/]The Seacoast Inn%L* is in the process of being completely re-built and turned into an "All-Suite Boutique Hotel with restaurant and spa...."
This, in conjunction with the Beach Club Rentals is a big step up for I.B. regarding the "Resort Beach" lable. Fear not, it is still a nice and casual place to relax at.
