This is another of my continuing series of great places to surf on the west coast. SWAMI’S is a fantastic surf spot in Encinitas California.
Swami’s, also known as “Swamis”, is an internationally known surfing spot, a point break located in Encinitas, California. Swami’s was named after Swami Paramahansa Yogananda, because the grounds and hermitage of the Self-Realization Fellowship ashram, built in 1937, overlook this reef point.
Access to Swami’s is primarily by way of a small but well-appointed cliff top park, which has bathrooms, a water fountain, benches, picnic tables and a lawn under shade trees, as well as a small parking lot. Most importantly, it also has a long wooden staircase leading down beside the cliff to a sand beach, which has a lifeguard station. The rocky point is a couple of hundred yards north of that station.
