Watch the Sunset at Windansea Beach

Rate this Adventure San Diego Windansea Parking Lot

Added by Alyssa San Agustin

  • The best spot in San Diego to watch the sunset
  • Plenty of areas to hang out
  • Well known for amazing surf
  • Amazing photography opportunities
  • Convenient stair access down to the beach

One of San Diego's hidden gems. This beach offers an incredible and beautiful view any time of the day. My favorite time to go to this beach is during the sunset. There is a set of stairs just north of the parking lot that leads down to the cliffs where you can sit, hang out, and relax. It's also a very popular spot for surfers and photographers.

There are a few parking spots in the lot indicated on the map and there is plenty of street parking in the surrounding area. This beach is great for families, children, and dogs! There is so much to do at this beach - you will not be disappointed. It is nicely tucked away from the crowded La Jolla Shores, has so much to offer and is truly one of San Diego's best beaches.
