Windansea Beach May Be the Perfect La Jolla Beach

La Jolla Community, News | 7th Nov 2012

Located at Neptune Place and Nautilus in La Jolla, Windansea Beach is known for its beauty and stunning surf breaks created by underwater reefs.  Named after an oceanfront hotel that burned down in the late 1940s, today it is considered one of the best beaches in the area.

Surfing at Windansea

Windansea has been a popular site for surfing as far back as the 1940s.  Since the 1960s it has been the gathering spot for the Windansea Surf Club.  A palm-covered surf shack built in 1948 during World War II was designated in the 1990s as a historic landmark.  Because of the steep beach, the surf breaks hard at the shoreline, creating optimal conditions for expert surfers to ride the waves.

Other Activities to Enjoy at Windansea

Windansea is one of the most scenic beaches in Southern California, and is an excellent spot for a sunset walk or a picnic on the sand.  Sandstone rocks along the beach create wonderful private nooks, perfect for sunbathing or to simply take in the beauty of the Pacific.

While swimming is allowed at Windansea, be careful when entering and exiting the water to prevent serious injury.  It’s not recommended as a place for children to play in the water.  Lifeguards are on duty on weekends in the spring and daily in the summer, and on weekends in September from 9am to dusk.

Parking and Restrooms

There are no public restrooms at Windansea, and no wheelchair access to the beach.  Parking is available on the street or at the tiny single lot located near the beach.  Arrive early to get the best parking.

Windansea is located near 6800 Neptune Place.  From the north, take Interstate 5 south to the Genesee Avenue exit and head west.  Take a left on Torrey Pines Road and follow it to downtown La Jolla.  Take a left on Girard Avenue and a right on Pearl Street.  Turn left on La Jolla Boulevard.  Make a right on Nautilus Street.  If traveling from the south, take Interstate 5 north to the Ardath Road exit.  Ardeth turns into Torrey Pines Road, and follow the same directions above from there.
