Beacon's Surf Spot


Not a lot of surfer's know about this hidden gem in Leucadia but some awesome waves break and go into shore with no one on them at this spot on a good swell. My father first showed me Beacon's about 6 years ago and I might not surf there as much as I would like but I often find that when I do paddle out, I find good people and even better waves.

Location:

 Beacon surf spot is located in the town of Leucadia, which is a few minutes North of Encinitas. Houses and apartments surround Beacon's so the community is very active in surfing and having a good time in the water.

The Parking Scenario:

There is a small parking located right on the bluff at Beacon's. There are a few Fire and City parking spots so be sure to make sure you are not occupying on those spots because a cop will cite you for doing so.

The parking lot at Beacon's

The parking lot can accommodate around 20 vehicles but other parking options are available. Neptune is a one way street that heads North along the coastline through Leucadia and there is parking all along this street. However be very cautious of where you park, make sure not to block a Fire lane or a person's driveway.

Beach Accessibility and Conveniences:

Once parked in the Beacon's parking lot or in the surrounding area. The beach access to Beacon's is located toward the South end of the parking lot.

The beach access isn't as maintained as some other surf spots in the surrounding area's like Swami's or Moonlight but it does allow for a fun and exciting walk down to the surf.

The walkway down to Beacon's beach

The walkway is cut into the bluff of the cliff and I wouldn't be surprised if this path was made by fellow surfers eager to hit the waves. It meanders down the face of the bluff and drops you off right on the beach.

I would recommend wearing some sandals on the walk down and be careful. I was in a hurry to hit the water before work one day and as I was hurrying down the walkway, I slipped, fell on my ass and ended up dinging one of my new short boards... So, as a warning, take your time and be careful! The pathway can be slippery and not all of it is the best terrain.

Lifeguard:

There are no Lifeguards on duty at Beacon's surf spot. However, the Lifeguards often are in there Jeeps and trucks driving back and forth along the beach.

Since there is no Lifeguard on permanent duty, please be sure to be careful and not to know your capabilities while out in the surf.
