  • Went to Swami's in Encinitas expecting same as La Mesa..No comparison. The food was barely edible. We did not eat the chicken in the burrito , little dry squares..Poor service.  more »
  • This is more famous as a surf spot than a casual beach goers location. The point can capture great west and north swells to form some really excellent waves for riding. It doesn't blow out very often ...  more »
  • Beautiful area. Love the stair well. You can look around and see for miles. Surfers like the spot. Close to town and restaurants  more »

  • Iconic. Local and tourist favorite. Nice walk from Swamis down to Cardiff (either up on road or down on beach)
  • A world renowned spot for epic surfing. The stairs are the best to improve your cardio! It's a Poke gym too!
  • Can't get any more local than Swamis...out of all the beaches in San Diego, this has the best local vibe and it's never too touristy. Worth a visit, I recommend sunset time when all the surfers are out.
  • Surf: One of the best breaks in San Diego. Plenty of rights even with a crowd. Even a few lefts. What to expect: Parking lot is tiny but there is a plethora of street parking. Public bathrooms in the parking lot. Shower down on the beach. There is a staircase with over a hundred steps to the beach. Conclusions: Don't miss this surf break on your travels
  • Beautiful. The parking lot is small but sufficient. Views from the top of the staircase are awesome, and when you get to the bottom of the stairs, the ocean feels like it's super close and high up for some reason. It's cool.
