San Diego Holidays

San Diego is a cool beachfront city, bustling with chic neighbourhoods and bathed in glorious Californian sunshine all year long. Boasting 70 miles of golden beaches combined with forests, wildlife preserves and desert landscapes; unsurprisingly, life here mostly happens outdoors.

We love the soul of San Diego, its friendly attitude and laidback lifestyle, the Victorian-era houses of the Gaslamp Quarter and Downtown’s trendy eateries and boutiques. Pass the time hopping on the Old Town Trolley and letting the tour guides charm you as you meander past attractions. Catch a game of baseball at Petco Park, visit the USS Midway Museum or San Diego Zoo Safari Park and have fun at LEGOLAND California and the SeaLife Aquarium and Water Park. Kayak along the La Jolla's coastline and into sea caves, try stand up paddleboarding on Mission Bay or toast s'mores on Coronado Island; San Diego is the perfect family destination.

Create a stunning Californian tour when you combine San Diego with a self drive road trip on Pacific Highway 1; from hip San Francisco and the movie star suburbs of Los Angeles to quaint seaside towns and incredible national parks; California is the state that has it all.

    "I would highly recommend Sunday Brunch at the Hotel Del Coronado, or known by all the locals as the Del. They serve an incredible feast in their Crown Room and even have a design-your-own donut station, which as you can imagine was delicious."
