Leucadia is part of Encinitas, quietly nestled in San Diego County along Encinitas’ north coast, just south of Carlsbad.

This beautiful community is just off the famed Pacific Coast Highway 101, where its 100-year-old shopping district is made up of small boutiques, casual restaurants, quirky stores and surf shops that are a big draw for tourists, while Leucadia beaches such as Swami’s, Grandview, Beacon’s and Stonesteps attract surfers seeking some of the best waves in Southern California.
Neptune Avenue that runs parallel to the coast provides stunning ocean views and access down steep steps to most beaches. Some of the most desirable real estate can be found along Neptune Avenue.
