Amazing sunset and soft sand
Jul 2021
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 and at sea level, as well as the sunset, make this both a memorable and almost spiritual experience. People walked peacefully along the water, children ran from the waves and a few people meditated peacefully, facing out to sea and making me want to join them in their reverie.

Beautiful Ocean Views, Lengthy but Limited Beach Area!
Mar 2021 • Family
We enjoyed a gorgeous Spring day at Swami's Beach, in Encinitas. Even on a busy Sunday we found parking on the 101. It is a quick walk to the beach, that is accessible by stairs. If you want beach time, make sure that you wait until the tide recedes. The beach is narrow, and at many places littered with smooth, black ocean stones. It is a popular beach for surfers, and a gorgeous stretch of beach for walking and taking photos. We can't wait to return to San Diego, and Swami Beach!

A surfers delight
Sep 2019
Nice beach but check the tide chart, if high or rising there will not be enough beach and Do NOT sit by the dangerous bluffs. There are steep stairs down to the beach, lots of stairs or go approx a quarter mile south to the next parking lot and walk down the ramp. Again, check the tide chart.

I absolutely loved Swami's Beach. It was super peaceful and dream-like. Would love to go back. The pebbles on the beach were really neat.

A great laid-back, southern CA vibe.
Oct 2019
Right on the famous 101, at the south side of Encinitas is my favorite breakfast place. The menu is diverse and delicious - I love the artichoke chicken scramble, but don't overlook the Acai Bowls and Acai Pancakes. They even have a choice of over a dozen coffees. Always yummy and friendly service!

Heavenly spot
Oct 2019
Even if you don't want to walk all of the wooden steps down to the beach here, at least stop and admire the magnificent 180 degree views. You can almost always see some first-rate surfers out there, in the line-up on this point break.

Situated right next to the SRF ashram grounds, this place has always had great vibes, very peaceful and uplifting. And when the conditions are right, it is a world-class surf spot.

The clifftop park is also a really great place to watch the sunset.

Worth checking out from above. There are lookout points and walkways all around Encinitas that are built just for this purpose.
