The rapid spread of the novel coronavirus and the strict lockdown rules imposed by the government in order to slow the spread have all had a tough impact on almost every aspect of our life. As summer is almost fully here, many are wondering what will happen to their vacation plans, how long are these restrictions going to be in place and most importantly, when will we able to fully enjoy the beautiful SoCal beaches.
One good news is that for the time being, Southern California has had a very low infection rate compared to other areas, with around 5.000 cases in the San Diego area. Considering this, state officials have decided to gradually reopen the beaches and some businesses, in the hopes that soon things will return to normal. For the next period, some restrictions will still be in place, and continuing to practice social distancing, wearing masks, and regularly washing our hands is still extremely important in order to flatten the curve. But despite that, there are many things to look forward to, and perhaps summer vacations don't need to be canceled.

After a long period of strict restrictions, the San Diegan beaches are finally opening up to the public, so if you've been dreaming about taking a swim in the ocean or getting back on that surfboard, now you can.

Gatherings, group sports, and laying on the beach is still not allowed. In case you're from the SoCal area and can't wait to get back in the ocean, here are the cities with open beaches.
