Fodor's Review

Its large parking areas, many facilities, and proximitiy to the quaint coastal town of Encinitas make this beach tucked into a break in the cliffs a great getaway. The volleyball courts on the northern end attract many competent players, and professionals can be spotted surfing the break known locally as "D Street." Moonlight is easily accessible from the Encinitas Coaster train station and S. Coast Highway 101, which runs right through town, is lined with great shops, restaurants and bars. A new Whole Foods in downtown Encinitas (www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/encinitas) is a great place to stop for picinic fixings before heading to the beach. There's a large free parking lot near the corner of 3rd and B Street. Amenities: food and drink, lifeguards, parking (no fee), showers, toilets. Best for: sunset, surfing, swimming.
