Why Folks Love Seascape Beach
Surfing at Seascape Beach
Surfing is popular at Seascape Beach, but so are plenty of other water activities. The beach is wide and sandy, so visitors enjoy walking, jogging, sunbathing and playing Frisbee in addition to swimming. Bluffs overlook the beach, making for a picturesque spot.
Seascape Beach is nowhere close to being the best surfing beach in the San Diego area, but it does occasionally offer great waves. It gets crowded on weekends, and some surfers prefer to come during the week.
The beach features decent northwest swells in the winter, while summer's southwest swells often close out the waves. Go south of the public access stairs for the best breaking waves. North of the stairs, you can find faster and hollower waves but they don't occur nearly enough to be worth it.
Surfers who live in the Solana Beach area do enjoy the proximity and access to Seascape Beach even if it does not offer the best waves. Think of it as a "residential" surfing beach. You wouldn't expect super-terrific waves from this type of beach, but you love having it so close to home.
Looking for Seclusion?
Seascape Beach in our opinion is on the best beaches in San Diego. It is secluded, beautiful with tons of sand & waves for the kids to play or surf. Stay until sunset and you round out your perfect day at the beach!
Other Activities at Seascape Beach
There's a lot more to like about Seascape Beach such as its surf-fishing and wide expanses of soft sand. Go for sunrise or sunset walks and for the prospect of a whale sighting (yes, they're uncommon, but whale sightings are a great treat).
Last but not least, the stairs make for great training if you want to get in shape. Athletes even use them for running up and down; they're safe stairs! The walk up or down should take less than five minutes.
