Our summers don’t end in August, they carry on through September making it an ideal time to visit us! We have amazing weather, less crowded beaches, whale watching opportunities, and plenty of exciting activities and festivals to enjoy.

Less Crowded Beaches 

As August ends and kids go back to school, our beloved beaches become serenely quiet. Instead of having to fight for a spot, you can choose from anywhere on the sand. Visiting in September means you’ll enjoy the warmest ocean temperatures, making your beach day even better. Take advantage of the endless summer days while having less of a crowd to share them with. Situated on the beach, Pacific Terrace Hotel lets you enjoy Pacific Beach whenever you please!
