There are no easy roads to Black’s Beach, which makes it not only a peaceful destination but one that is worth the trip for solitude and serenity. Why Black’s Beach? We chose it for its mystique and place in local and national beach culture. Although it’s not too far from the hustle and bustle of the Village of Del Mar, it is a world away. We explored the crevices, nooks, and vignettes of this hidden oasis, bringing with us beach and summer essentials, including some gorgeous on-trend swimwear and heavenly accessories. We may have shared the afternoon with the resolute surfer and brave hikers, but the beach was ours alone to create a groovy beach den of pillows, towels and scarves. Hiking to the tiki hut is not for the faint-of-heart but is worth the view from the top and the unmistakable, albeit rustic, throwback to the beach culture of the 50s and 60s creates the perfect backdrop for a lingering afternoon in the sun.
