Although Leucadia is officially part of Encinitas, it ha s its own unique personality. Located on a series of bluffs along the coastline, Leucadia is known for surfing and in fact was named one o f the “World’s Best Surf Towns” by National Geographic in 2014. The historic Coast Highway 101 has been a feature of Leucadia for over 100 years and is spotted with historic buildings along the way. Housing choices are those built on the bluffs above the beach to smaller clusters of homes a little further away, yet still walking distance to the beach.
