  • I visited Swami's Beach several time during my Encinitas visit. I enjoyed the people watching, from families with kids poking around the water's edge to joggers and surfers. Seemed to be a place highl...  more »

  • Great location to watch surfer's all day. If you watch from the cliffs you have spectacular views as well. A fairly quiet beach as mostly surfer's frequent the area with a few paddle boarders. No dogs...  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
  • The acai bowl is delicious. A definite favorite in Encinitas.
