Beautiful view of the beaches and coast below! The wave is mushy and slow and breaks during the summer. Excellent park and lookout spot!

First off, I love the small town feel of Encinitas, that makes Swami's one of the best beaches in SD in general. Mostly locals relaxing, so don't tell everyone but go and enjoy at will!

A beloved surf spot for the locals, with stunning views of the surfers and the Pacific. Parking is free but limited - respect the surfers needs for parking.

On a recent walk between Cardiff and Encinitas, we stopped and took in the sights at the beach. The polynesian style totems, the nice public art, and the awesome views prolonged our stop. This is a gem of a beach.

We hung out at Swami's for sunset, and it was amazing. Although, the swell was pretty small, so the surf was not to good. The beach was not very crowded and it was beautiful. I would love to go back during the day and surf,...More

Swamis Beach is popular surf location with "modest sized" parking lot with bath rooms. There's a significant set of stairs down to the beach (nearly 200) that's good for a work out. Best accessed by parking on Vulcan Street, using the Swamis Pedestrian underpass of...More

Swami’s beach is a beautiful right point break offering exceptional rides for intermediate-advanced surfers. Next to the self realization fellowship with its iconic lotus flower temple entrance, the combination makes for great sunset photos, walks or a frolic in the sea. Sometimes crowded, always a...More

Great beach. Plenty of area to just stop and relax on. Watch the surfers, shell collecting, soak in the sun. All can be done at that beach.
