Three beach areas along the shores of Encinitas are known as Moonlight State Beach to the north, D Street aka 'Boneyards' , and Cardiff to the south. 

Moonlight is popular for it's user-friendly parking, lifeguards, restrooms and snack bar.  D Street is rocky suited more for surfers than sunbathers. Swamis is generally swamped with surfers and also not a good destination for sunbathers.  However, Sea Cliff is a small park next to the Swami parking lot that has shade trees, and barbeque facilities for picnic devotees as well as bathrooms.  (Divers occasionally visit Swami's reef but prefer La Jolla and Point Loma).

Encinitas is a wonderful town full of shops and restaurants and home of the historic La Paloma Theat
