Beaches Index

San Elijo State Beach

General:
This beach is a long, narrow, gently sloping stretch of sand backed by bluffs, atop which resides the campsite. Besides regular beach activity, there is a reef nearby for snorkeling and diving. To get to the beach, there are six beach-access stairways that descend from the campground. Surfers have access to a newly paved public parking lot and an entrance at the north end of the park grounds, making access to surfing reefs such as Tippers and Pipes much easier.

Activities:
Swimming, surfing, snorkeling, diving, beachcombing, fishing, picnicking, and camping.

Facilities:
Lifeguards
Restrooms: Six family-style restrooms with individual unisex stalls.
Campsites: South end of beach. Campground has 171 spaces for tents or RVs up to 35-feet long, picnic tables, fire grills, piped water, flush toilets, showers, a dump station and a small store. Some of the campsites and the store are wheelchair-accessible. Pets are permitted on 6-foot leashes on the campground, but not on the beach.
