I went to Moonlight Beach 3 times during my 3 day trip to Encinitas, CA. It was only a 12 min. walk from where I was staying. It’s a pretty active beach with a playground for kids, volley ball nets and games going on much of the time. There is a concession stand, a lifeguard building and lifeguard towers strung along the beach. The beach is approached by Encinitas Blvd with parking in the neighborhood and a parking lot up above the beach to the SE of it. Houses to the North and South of the beach have steep stairs that go down the cliffs there. You can walk along the beach to the North and South but be careful with the tides so you don’t get trapped by the water.

There were several programs going on for children, on the shoreline, and on the beach. There were surfing lessons going on, too.
The volley ball courts were in full use every time I went, except for early morning.
I liked this mural next to the Lifeguard building.
In the same building of the concession stand were men’s and women’s bathrooms, with room to change as well. There were showers on the beach to wash off the sand. I like how family and user friendly this beach is in all ways. If you are in Encinitas, come check it out.
