Leucadia Beaches

Leucadia State Beach is a great local beach and it may be the least touristy of all the state beaches. Leucadia State Beach is made up to two beach access points in the Leucadia neighborhood of northern Encinitas, CA. Driving down the 101 (North Coast Highway), there are no state park signs pointing you to the beach just a couple blocks west, only subtle public beach access signs around the neighborhood.

The two beaches if you drive a little further south from Leucadia State Beach are Beacon’s and Grandview. The first is west on Leucadia Boulevard from Coast Highway and the other is west on Grandview Street. Both have small parking lots that fill up quickly. You will find many surfers here and locals relaxing on the sand. The surfing is good much of the time. When the tide is not high, it’s possible to walk on the one-mile stretch of sand between these beaches without getting your feet wet.

From the staircase at Grandview it is another half-mile beach walk north to South Ponto Beach and from Beacon’s it is 3/4-mile to Stone Steps Beach, another hidden Encinitas beach access.

“James, A big thanks to you for all your hard work and success with Cottage and Lapis.  Lapis was a struggle with the lender but it would have been a lot harder on us if Cottage didn’t go as smoothly as it did.  I brag to all our friends/family that we put the house on the market on a Friday, open house that Sunday, and under contract Tuesday.  That’s why you’re the best in the biz and we are very grateful for your services, advice, attention to detail, and prompt follow-up.”
