Grandview Beach is the north beach access point at Leucadia State Beach, a California state park that is run by the city of Encinitas.
Grandview Beach is a narrow beach below high bluffs topped with homes and condo buildings that have a “grand view” of the ocean. At high tide there isn’t much beach exposed, but otherwise this beach is excellent for walking.
A long wooden stairway takes you down to the beach from the parking lot at the north end of Neptune Avenue near Grandview Street. Surfers hike up and down with their boards to enjoy the surf here as they do at Beacon’s Beach, the south access point of Leucadia State Beach about one mile away.
There are no facilities here, but you could walk the beach north a half-mile to South Ponto Beach which has restrooms.
