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 a only a four minute walk from a wonderful little Bed and Breakfast Inn called the Inn at Moonlight Beach. Stone Steps Beach, Beacon's and Grandview surfing and bathing beaches are north of Moonlight Beach, all within walking distance or a brief drive up Neptune Avenue.
You can learn to surf by taking a surfing class at Beacons Beach from the world-famous surfer named Kahuna Bob, a famous surf icon in Encinitas. His classes are great fun - just google Kahuna Bob Encinitas and you will be surfing in no time.
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.
