  • This is a must-see in Encinitas. Don't miss it. It takes about 160 some odd steps to get down to the ocean, but you will never regret it. The air, the soft sand, the incredible view from above...

  • So it’s a lot of stairs but the beach itself is nice the bad thing I did notice was the seaweed there was a lot of it and some as soon as you get close to the water and those were full of flies if they could push them off to the side or clean it up it would be better another thing I notice was that the lifeguard closed it’s little room at 6pm the beach stays open until 12 it says on the sign the sign also says smoke free no glass containers but meanwhile I was on the parking lot I saw homeless people sleeping on the grass are and an older man with a drug pipe smoking I think crack not sure what it was, the woman’s restroom is upstairs so if you have to go after you are on the sand it will be a good walk up the stairs to use it and the bad thing is there’s only one stall too, they need to put more police patrols around there is a small area parking space so far I’ve been able to park in the parking lot just a little bit of a wait.the city is clean and the beach is close to a lot of shops and bars and restaurants.
  • Stopped in to burn time before campsite check in. Limited parking but scored a spot. Picnicked at one of the three tables located on a grassy area. Pretty cliff side view of Cardiff seaside. Bathrooms and beach side access available with a shower after swimming/surfing.
