Leucadia is a beach community located in the coastal city of Encinitas, California. The relatively secluded beaches of Leucadia lend it a prominence in Southern California surf culture and as such, Encinitas is recognized globally as one of the most quintessential surf towns.
The name Leucadia is of Greek origin as its namesake, Lefkada (Leucadia), is one of the Ionian Islands. The founding of the community is often attributed to English spiritualists seeking freedom of worship. Early in the community's history a development company based in San Diego gave Leucadia and its streets their Roman-Greco names of which include: Hymettus, Neptune, Phoebe, Daphne. While the developers had plans for a grand resort, the Hotel Sappho, such plans never came to fruition.
Leucadia faces the Pacific Ocean. The community is set on a series of bluffs that stretch along much of the length of the North County coastline, a region of San Diego County. Its beaches are located below steep vertical cliffs lending them a relative seclusion.
