Highlights | Logistics | Getting There | Insider Tips


Leucadia, south of Carlsbad, was once an agricultural community where farmers grew tomatoes, flowers, and ornamental plants. Today, although some farming continues, Leucadia is an interesting contrast of casual hippies, luxury beach homes perched above the beach, and a strip of businesses, surf shops, taco eateries, and restaurants along South Coast Highway 101. Leucadia has excellent surfing, swimming, and fishing.


Facilities are sparse, with two small parking lots and no restrooms or lifeguards. Locals use several small parking lots located on Neptune Ave.to access Leucadia State Beach. (see directions below)

Getting There

Leucadia is located off I-5. Take the Leucadia Boulevard or La Costa Avenue exits and head west. Parking is available along residential streets west of 101 or in small lots off Neptune Ave.

Insider Tips

From Neptune Ave. take the stairs down to the beach. The beaches are uncrowded, quiet, great places to spend the whole day.

Don't forget to pack a lunch, there’s no fast food at the beach. Walk several blocks east from the beach to Highway 101 for a good selection of eateries.
