Parking

Swimming, surfing, fishing and picnicking are popular at this small, rocky beach. The beach access is via an improved trail at the foot of Leucadia Boulevard.

On the maps, it's “Leucadia State Beach,” but ask the locals, and they will just say, “It’s always been Beacon’s. Even the sign at the top of the bluff reads Beacon’s."
