Overview of Windansea

Windansea

California South
USA West

Home

If you find an exceptionally calm day, dive Windansea. At the Southern entry you can find a rocky point to explore, and a few minutes off shore, you'll find a large reef. Because this beach is fully exposed to the full power of the Pacific, treat this site with respect.

Directions: 11 miles North of San Diego, take the Ardath Road exit to the West. In 1.4 miles bear left on Torrey Pines Road; 0.85 mile, turn right on Prospect Place; 0.2 miles, bear left onto Prospect Street; 0.75 miles bear left onto La Jolla Blvd; 1.1 mile turn right onto Palomar Ave. The beach is straight ahead.

02/06/2003 Rob Barton (Avg: 2.72 Review) - I've heard Windandsea is supposed to have plenty of animal life, but we must have missed out the day we went. The entry/exit was fairly easy. There were a few rocks but nothing to trip over. We saw plenty of eel grass and some scattered fish. I don't think we made it deep enough to find the really interesting stuff. So here's a tip: stay deeper than 25'.

05/30/2002 Anonymous (Avg: 2.98 Review) - Not that great for visibility. I'm sure there would be a lot of bugs out here during season, and it would be an easy night entry. But for a fun day dive, this place lacks in visibility.
