Was the information you received helpful? I own a home in Vista in the Buena Creek area and am an avid surfer (at least 4 to 5 days a week). It takes me 25 minutes to get to my favorite surf spot, Cardiff Reef).
I also have a Beach Casita in Leucadia where I live from Spring to early fall. It's about 300 feet from Beacons and a mile from Ponto's It takes me about 20 minutes to get there from my Vista residence and it's all freeway. 78 to the 5. South to La Costa.
There's nothing wrong with the freeway's as long as you don't go during rush hour. I've been driving both freeways and surface streets for over 3 decades and have never had a problem unless there's an accident or Southbound Vacation or weekend gridlock. Then the surface streets are your best bet.
I'll sometimes get off at Tamarack and cruise the surf line to check the waves out at all the great surf spots i.e. Tamarack, Warmwaters, Turnarounds, The Dip, Carlsbad State Beach, Pontos, Grandview, Beacons, Stonesteps, Moonlight, D Street, Boneyards, Swamies, Pipes, San Elijo campgrounds, Cardiff Reef, Seaside, Tabletops and all the secret peaks in between. There's so many great spots and free parking along the way that are no more than 20 to 25 minutes from San Marcos.
