Temecula is 31 miles from the nearest beach (in Oceanside) but we are lucky to have an amazing training facility right here in our own "backyard." Murrieta Mesa High School as well as other locations provide us with terrific sand, beautiful weather, clean air and a beach like breeze as sunset approaches. We even get the marine layer here in Temecula as it coasts over the De Luz hills to our west.
