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 & Lucy to dive into two virtual field trips that showcase the wonder of the sea.
