San Elijo State Beach

Explore - San Elijo State Beach

San Diego is home to some unique places, and San Elijo State Beach is no exception! Within our California State Park there is a Marine Protected Area named after world-renowned surfing hotspot, Swamis. You might of heard the name in a famous Beach Boys song, "Surfin' USA"! If that doesn't grab your attention, the mysterious jellyfish (a.k.a jellies) that call our park home just might. Join Interpreters Sandy, Anita, and Kayla to dive into two virtual field trips that showcase the wonder of the sea.
