Moonlight is a popular family beach, with a park and a newly constructed concession stand and equipment rental.  The beach has a large, marked-off swimming zone and the majority of the waves are shifty beach breaks, which is great for surfing and for bodysurfing.  A shortboard is recommended for the majority of moonlight, as the sandy bottom allows for fast peaks and quick rides.  The far southern end of moonlight has a reef break that connects to the northern part of Swamis, and if you're looking for a spot to ride SUP or longboards this wave is a good choice.  Moonlight can break well at almost any tide.
