Del Mar Mesa is a semi-rural residential community of 2,042 acres (8.26 km2) located in northern San Diego, California. The majority of the community was developed in the 2000s. Over 900 acres is preserved open space protected habitat. The community also has 10 miles of hiking, biking and riding trails. Minimum lot size is half acre.

A number of artifacts, including pottery, possibly dating back 9,000 to 10,000 years ago, were found in this community and are being studied by the San Diego Archaeological Center.[1]


Del Mar Mesa is bordered: to the north by Carmel Valley and Rancho Santa Fe; to the south by Los Peñasquitos Canyon; to the east by Rancho Peñasquitos and Pacific Highlands Ranch; and to the west by Carmel Valley and Torrey Hills. State Route 56 (Ted Williams Freeway) is slightly north of this community.

In the eastern part of the community, a large portion of land is conserved for open space under the City's Multiple Species Conservation Program.[2] Eucalyptus groves in the community were planted around farmsteads in the 1800s.[2]
