Leucadia Neighborhood Guide

Leucadia is a neighborhood in northern Encinitas, known for its secluded surf beaches, laid-back organic vibe, and beautiful weather. This beach town has plenty of well-regarded yoga studios − the story goes that it was founded by English spiritualists, so perhaps that explains its free-spirited reputation.

The community is built on a series of cliffs overlooking the ocean, and you have to climb down a series of steps to reach the surfing spots. That doesn’t stop surfers from spending time here − the best-known beaches are Beacon’s, Grandview, and Stone Steps. If you’re tired of crowded, touristy beaches then Leucadia might be the place for you.

Real estate here is a mix of detached single-family homes, townhouses, compounds, and apartments, with some mobile homes thrown in. The main street is the North Coast Highway 101, which features an eclectic selection of small shops and restaurants. Neptune Avenue runs along the seaside bluffs and contains some of the most desirable properties, with fantastic ocean views and easy beach access. Each house has its own character, just like this charming seaside town.
