The beach access stairways located at Swami’s, D Street, Stonesteps and Grandview will open for access to, and egress from the beaches at 8am on Saturday, May 9. A facial covering is MANDATORY while using the narrow staircases. Please help us keep these access points open by using them only to transit back and forth to the beach (no jogging/working out on stairs). Use the stairs in a single file fashion, please be respectful while passing others, and remember that as restrictions are beginning to be lifted, elements of the Public Health Order remain in effect.
Beacons Beach access will remain closed due to damages from the April 10th rainstorms which dropped over 4 inches of rain in a short time period causing erosion damage to the bluff and trail. Encinitas Parks and Recreation Department is awaiting approval from the Coastal Commission to allow the necessary repairs to be made to reopen the trail. Beacons Beach Trail will remain closed until the repairs are completed. We are asking everyone to refrain from using this access while it is closed as it could be dangerous as well as cause further damage resulting in a longer construction period.
