Del Mar Heights Neighborhood Guide

Del Mar is a seaside village a little less than 20 miles north of San Diego. Its beautiful beaches, wooded natural areas, and entertaining attractions make it one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Southern California. From watching the horse racing at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, to shopping for luxury brands at the Del Mar Plaza, to hiking in parks graced by the endangered Torrey Pine trees, you’ve always got something interesting to do in Del Mar.

The schools here, public and private, or some of the best in the country. That, and Del Mar Heights’ reputation as a quiet and safe neighborhood, make this a great place to raise a family. Real estate here is mostly composed of upscale single-family homes, with a few townhomes and apartments also available.

Del Mar Heights is bounded by Interstate-5 on the east side, with easy access to it via Del Mar Heights Road. Carmel Valley Road and Camino Del Mar can be found on the west side.
