Beach bonfires are a time-honored tradition California residents and visitors have enjoyed for years. Most beaches provide fire pits free, on a first-come-first-served basis, you bring the wood. Call your friends and family, sing a song around the fire and make s’mores. San Diego beach bonfires are a tradition that even the god of fire would be proud of. Not all San Diego beaches allow bonfire but here are a few to get you started. Oceanside Harbor Beach, Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, Mission Beach, and Coronado Beach. Please don’t forget to extinguish your fire before you leave!
