Moonlight beach is the most popular beach in Encinitas. Here locals meet, play volley ball games, have a bbq, swim or just relax on the beach. Weekends can be really crowded during summer, making it hard to find a parking spot in the area. To the left of Moonlight Beach is an elevated area with artificial grass, ideal for little kids or adults who don't want to get their feet sandy. From there, you have the perfect view of the beach below and the ocean in front of you. Down below you will also see new lifeguard facilities and to the right, a concession stand including restrooms and showers. During summer, the beach is also home to several concerts that are usually very well attended.
