Encinitas California is blessed with 6 miles of gorgeous beaches, eleven of them! Whether its surfing, swimming, scuba diving, boogie-boarding, sunning, reading a book, jogging, volley-balling or just basking in the serenity of a secluded beach, Encinitas is a great place to be 12 months a year.
Fitness enthusiasts will get a great workout at Stone Steps Beach. I ran these stairs 6 times each morning while visiting Encinitas and was was in the best shape of my life. These killer stairs lead down from the bluffs to the ocean offer awesome views to enjoy while you huff and puff. At high tide the ocean beats at the bottom of the stairs, at low tide, the beach is wide and sandy.
Swami’s Surf Beach, forever immortalized in the Beach Boys Surfin USA, is just five blocks south of Moonlight Beach on historic Highway 101 and still draws the finest surfers in the world on a daily basis. Great scuba diving is just offshore from Swamis at the Encinitas Marine Life Refuge, North San Diego’s underwater park.
Moonlight Beach is just a five minute walk from where I stay when I visit: a delightful little Bed and Breakfast Inn called the Inn at Moonlight Beach. Three world class beaches are within a mile or two of the Inn at Moonlight Beach, all within walking distance or a brief drive up Neptune Avenue.
Anyone can learn to surf by taking surfing classes with world-famous Kahuna Bob, an icon in Encinitas. You can find him by Googling Kahuna Bob Surfing.
Moonlight Beach is often called the beach with everything because it has lifeguard towers, a children’s playground, big parking lots, play areas, fire-rings, showers, restrooms, beach rentals, a great little snack bar and a beautiful wide sandy beach with lots of volleyball courts.
