“A hot spot for beachcombers and surfers alike”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

A great place to sit on the bluff overlooking the ocean and surfers. A popular local spot, very little parking but a nice park.

“Classic surf break in So Cal; fun place to visit tide pools”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Swami's often has big waves that the rest of the North Coast does not have until you hit Dana Point so it is a good place for surfers. For non-surfers it has deep and interesting tide pools when the water is just right

“Swami's Beach”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

This beach located in south Encinitas may not be the easiest beach to find and access, but it has some of the most beautiful sand around. Surfers are in the water year around; and though I'm not a surfer, I understand it's one of the prime spots in San Diego County for catching a wave. Be sure to check out the Friendship Gardens at the top of the cliff. Year around grooming of the grounds produce flowers and a peaceful setting all the time.

“No place better to enjoy SoCal.”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Easy access, clean beaches, good parking. And you can't beat the view. One of the nicest beaches in the San Diego area with free parking nearby.
