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.


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.


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

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.
