Ocean Beach Real Estate (see View listings tab on right or scroll down)
Ocean Beach (also known as O.B.) is a beachfront neighborhood of San Diego, California. Ocean Beach lies on the Pacific Ocean at the estuary of the San Diego River, at the western terminus of Interstate 8. Located about 7 miles (11 km) northwest of Downtown San Diego, it sits south of Mission Bay and Mission Beach and directly north of Point Loma. The O.B. community planning area comprises about 1 square mile (742 acres), bounded on the north by the San Diego River, on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the east by Froude St., Seaside St. and West Point Loma Boulevard, and on the south by Adair Street.
Known as one of the more affordable beach communities, Ocean Beach or OB nestles against the northern ocean side of San Diego’s peninsula. Popular with college students, surfers and others who prefer a free and open lifestyle, this stimulating area is well served by San Diego Transit buses. Home styles situated close to the ocean are generally smaller bungalows and beach cottages that also make ideal rental properties. Approaching the hill leading to Point Loma, properties grow larger in size and homes tend to be more elegant in design. Located attractions include a selection of antique stores, the farmer’s market, and “OB pier” — the West Coast’s longest commercial pier.
