About Encinitas

Encinitas is a coastal beach city that is situated along six miles of picturesque Pacific Ocean coastline in San Diego County, California. It is well-known as one of the best surf towns in the world and has also gained fame as the “Flower Capital of the World” because of its many gardens and nurseries and its prominence as the leading grower of the poinsettia. Encinitas vacation rentals are perfect for any trip, and invite visitors to enjoy Southern California as the locals do.

Climate

Mild temperatures and sunny skies are typical of Encinitas weather year-round. The average daily temperature in this part of Southern California is 70 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes Encinitas a perfect vacation destination during any season.

Neighborhoods 

Encinitas is often divided into five main communities for vacationers to visit. Enter the city through the Encinitas welcome arch and arrive in Old Encinitas. This neighborhood is well-known for its superb surfing and the world-famous surfing spot, Swami’s. New Encinitas is a great area for golfers and shoppers, and vacationers will find lots of spacious Encinitas vacation rentals in this part of the city. If you are an art connoisseur, enjoy horseback riding, or shopping at unique boutiques, Olivenhain and Leucadia are the best spots. Cardiff-by-the-Sea offers oceanfront rentals and beautiful stretches of beach where surf contests are held throughout the year. 

Things to do

Start your trip by visiting one of the local beaches like Moonlight Beach or Swami’s Beach. Both are ideal for a game of volleyball or picnicking, and the beaches are a great spot to take a dip, surf, or simply people-watch. San Diego Surfing Academy offers lessons for surfers of every level and is a fun activity for every age.

A trip to Encinitas would not be complete without a visit to the San Diego Botanic Garden. Explore miles of trails throughout the garden to take in the beautiful flowering trees, majestic palms, tranquil vistas and large bamboo collection. You’ll feel like you’re traveling through multiple different climates without leaving the garden and the interesting exhibits will open your eyes to new plant life.

If you have kids, staying in one of the Encinitas vacation rentals in the area will give you easy access to nearby San Diego theme parks. You might find yourself minutes from Legoland or a short drive from SeaWorld or the San Diego Zoo.

Food & Dining

When it comes to food, the shoreline in Encinitas has many restaurants and sidewalk cafes to enjoy. You can find everything from coffee and tea to fresh seafood and burgers. Grab breakfast at Pipes Café before hitting the beach or try the apple pancakes at the 101 Diner. For dinner, feast at the Pacific Coast Grill while enjoying spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.

Events

Experience the Southern California lifestyle in Encinitas by attending one of the local events held throughout the year. In the Spring, the Encinitas April Street Fair features live entertainment on two stages, a variety of food and shopping vendors, as well as fun activities for children. A similar festival is held during the fall as well, so vacationers have two opportunities to visit for this event. In September, the Wavecrest Woodies meet up at Moonlight Beach for the longest-running and largest gathering of these wood-paneled vehicles in the world. It’s quite a sight for car aficionados.

No matter when you choose to visit Encinitas you won’t be disappointed during your stay. Choosing which of the many Encinitas villa rentals to stay in is just one part of planning your trip. The other part is choosing what exciting things to do you want to add to your itinerary. There is no shortage of opportunities for fun here!
