San Diego Sights

Moonlight State Beach

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 05/16/2014

Fodor's Review

Its large parking areas and many facilities make this beach tucked into a break in the cliffs an easy getaway. The volleyball courts on the northern end attract many competent players, including a few professionals who live in the area. Moonlight is easily accessible from the Encinitas Coaster train station. Amenities: food and drink, lifeguards, parking (no fee), showers, toilets. Best for: solitude, surfing, swimming.
