San Diego Travel Information

When to Go

San Diego has an all-but-perfect climate, so weather-wise any time is a good time to visit. If you want to indulge in watersports and bake yourself on the beach, it's best to come between May and October, when average daily highs range from 70° to 85°F (22° to 30°C). Even in the coolest months (December and January), daily high temperatures still hover pleasantly close to 68°F (20°C). Surfing is always good, but the best conditions are from September to November, with strong swells and offshore Santa Ana winds. Gray whales migrate along the coast from January to early April. Point Loma is the best viewing spot in town.

Getting Around

There are some direct international flights to San Diego's Lindbergh Field (SAN) airport, but it's not a major gateway. If you're flying in from abroad, you will most likely come via Los Angeles or another big US city. A connecting flight from LA to San Diego takes about 35 minutes, or you could rent a car for the 2.5-hour drive south.

San Diego Harbour Excursion operates a Water Taxi serving Harbor Island, Shelter Island, Downtown and Coronado.

There are great cycle routes in Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, Mission Bay and Coronado. Some routes on MTS buses have a bike rack, and bikes can be transported without extra charge.
