Added by Noah Crider

A surf photographers heaven located in a beautiful southern california beach town.

Pack for a day of fun, and don’t forget your camera!

Getting there is easy. You can plug “beacons beach” or Leucadia State Beach right into your gps. You’ll find it right off of Neptune Street, where you can park in the parking lot on top of the sea bluff. Walk down the windy beach trail and you are there!

Enjoy your time there and don’t forget to pick up any trash you see! Let’s keep our beaches clean.

Easy Parking

Photograph Surfers at Beacons Beach Reviews

A great place to just hang out. Parking is easy and the hike down to the beach is a breeze. Nice little spot to just chill out and have a picnic and watch all the surfers in the ocean.

Beacons beach is one of my go-to’s in North County. Even when it’s night ride there is usually still some sand to be found (away from the cliffs)! Great for photos, a walk or run, or even just parking lot hangs with a coffee!!
