Sandstone cliffs, sandy beach, and incredible surf breaks, Windansea
has been a popular with the surfers, as far back as the 1940s and is
where the Windansea Surf Club have gathered since the 1960s. A shack,
on the beach, built by surfers during World War II is now a San Diego
Historic site. Also great for body surfing and snorkeling. The north end of the
beach is a bit rocky, but the south is has plenty of soft sand,
great for a nice walk along the water's edge.
No public restrooms at Windansea Beach. Lifeguards are there during the
summer and during some weekends in fall and spring. No wheelchair access to the
beach. Separated swim and surf zones. Park on the street or
try the small single lot near the beach.
