People looking to get outside and appreciate nature have hundreds of things to do in San Diego, but not many can compare to the sheer beauty of exploring the cliffs of Torrey Pines. With so many different trails and scenic views to enjoy, hiking Torrey Pines never gets old. The natural beauty that surrounds you in the bluffs above the sandy shore also makes this an ideal place to relax and meditate.
Craig’s guided meditation hike takes Funseekers on a guided tour of one of San Diego’s most popular and serene landmarks, Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve. Here you will hike through a protected area of 1,500 acres of land including rugged ocean cliffs, pristine beaches, a lagoon, and unique flora including the Torrey pine and maritime chaparral. If you take some time to look down from the cliffs and into the ocean you might even see some whales and dolphins breaking the surface in the distance. The Funbassadors are more than happy to share their intimate knowledge of the area as you explore. When you reach a certain point on the hike your guides will pause and offer a guided meditation that will help you relax and get in touch with yourself and with nature at one of the most beautiful natural settings in the state. If you choose not to take part in the meditation, you are free to hike and explore on your own, and then meet up with the group after they are done meditating.
A guided meditation hike costs only $30 per person, making it one of the most amazing cheap things to do in San Diego that you’ll find. Craig even provides transportation from his residence so you won’t need to worry about fighting for a parking space at the beach before your hike. On top of that, water will be provided to keep you hydrated during the two hour hike. It’s recommended that you wear exercise clothes and close-toed shoes for the hike. You should also bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat as well as some extra water and a camera. Tourists and locals alike find themselves drawn to Torrey Pines when they are wondering what to do in San Diego, and after visiting and taking a guided tour, you will understand why. Sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, one of a kind plants and trees, and a cool ocean breeze all combine to make this hike a feast for the senses.
