Moonlight Beach, Encinitas

#1 of 14 in Things to do in Encinitas
Fan Page - Moonlight Beach is a great place for almost any kind of beach activity, including swimming, surfing, sunbathing, picnicing, walking and jogging. The area just in front of the main beach is designated for swimmers only, with surfing designated to the north and south. The kelp beds a quarter mile off the beach makes this a good diving spot.
Our Encinitas trip itinerary maker makes visiting Moonlight Beach and other Encinitas attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
