Solana Beach is one of those little known secrets that offer residents the opportunity to enjoy the beach, the beauty, and the serene atmosphere. The only difference between Solana Beach and other beaches in North County is that the beach is often up against a cliff; however, Solana Beach makes it possible by the way, of stairs to reach the beach without any trouble at all, creating an even more secluded feel.
Taking the different staircases to the beach can be quite an adventure, as each one will lead to a new location. You may find yourself on a secluded beach or one where you can watch fishermen, keep on eye on the waves for surfers, or build a sand castle on a family beach.
The main areas of Solana Beach often frequented by residents include Seaside, which is a surfer’s dream, Tide Beach for those that love sand and reef, Fletcher Cover another great spot for surging, and Seascape Surf Beach and Del Mar Shores are great for relaxing on the beach.
Solana Beach Art
For those that want more than just visiting the beach will love what Solana Beach is famous for, the artwork.
A new metalwork sculpture by Amos Robinson has a new home in Solana Beach. His sculpture, "Love My Bike" now has a permanent home on the corner of Cedros Avenue and Rosa Street.
Amos Robinson explained that he remembers the first time he rode his bike as a child, with the wind blowing through his hair. Yes later he dreamed about this experience and hurriedly went to his studio to recreate the look and exhilaration he felt as a child.
"I’m a dreamer," Robinson said. "When I dream something I put it together right away, sometimes without even measuring anything."
This is the dream behind the new metalwork he installed at the above location on March 30.
Sean MacLeod, developer at South Cedros Associates, who commissioned the larger-than-life installation stated, "Public art represents a community’s spirit and offers a sense of pride, bringing people together."
The design is Robinson’s rendition of a person on a bike with their hair blowing in the wind, which he calls, "reflective kinetics," meaning the sculpture moves "like a windmill in the wind and reflects off its metal surface the surrounding scenery".
You can find other sculptures created by Robinson at the Wolfstein Sculpture Parks at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla and Encinitas, the Manpower corporate office in downtown San Diego and at Tidelands Park in Coronado.
