San Diego beaches are open year round, which is one of the features that makes San Diego such a wonderful place to live. In fact, locals enjoy the beaches even more after the summer months have passed because they are not so crowded.
Though our local beaches are generally open there are frequent specific beach closures during the winter months due to water quality issues. Our local water and sewer infastructure needs substantial repair and improvement in order to fully acommodate the population. The additional impact caused by winter run off creates problems for some of our beach areas.
