If you're looking to commune with nature, Torrey Pines is the place to go. There's Torrey Pine State Beach, a three mile beach with a north section, offering traditional activities for traditional beach bums - like swimming, and a southern section, offering non-traditional activities for non-traditional beach goers - like swimming "au naturel". At Torrey pines State Park, a 1750-acre reserve dedicated to preserving its namesake, the Torrey Pine tree (which grows only there) and other indigenous wildlife in its native environment you'll find pine forests, sandstone canyons and a challenging network of dirt hiking trails on the bluffs overlooking the sea.
