San Diego Sights

Windansea Beach

Fodor's Review

Named for a hotel that burned down in the late 1940s, Windansea Beach has become famous for the unusual A-frame waves the reef break here creates—and for the eclectic group of surfers those waves attract. This is one of San Diego County's most popular surf spots, and with its incredible views and secluded sunbathing spots set among sandstone rocks, Windansea is also one of the most romantic of West Coast beaches, especially at sunset. You can usually find nearby street

parking. Amenities: lifeguards. Best for: sunset, surfing, solitude.
