“located west of I-5 on Encinitas Boulevard”
This wide, sandy beach offers swimming, surfing and fishing. Facilities include volleyball and tennis courts, recreational equipment rentals and a snack bar. The "moonlight" in the name of this beach comes from the fact that local residents used to come to the area for midnight picnics early in the early 1900s.
What a great family day we spent at the Moonlight State Beach!!! We went early in the morning so there was enough parking space (it was full by the time we left) and we unloaded the kids surf boards and our lunch packs.
We soon found a great spot in the middle of the beach where we could see all around. The sun was waving to us from above and we got a nice sun tan while the lifeguards were keeping an eye to our children.
We truly enjoyed it and we stayed till late...Do not miss it!
