Little Known Shoreline Gem Being Upgraded: Encinal Beach in Alameda will soon break ground on major improvements, including dune restoration, shoreline stabilization, and public access upgrades.
Encinal Beach is tucked away behind Encinal High School and, along with the City of Alameda boat ramp, provides beach and water access for fishing, kayaking, and other water sports. Encinal Beach is part of the San Francisco Bay Water Trail that provides access to 450-square miles of open water – the Bay Area's largest single open space. The boat ramp area was recently upgraded separately by the City of Alameda. Encinal Beach is closed for construction until December 2020.
