A Surfers Heaven

Located in North San Diego County, the laid-back town of Encinitas covers six miles of rugged coastline and 21.5 square miles of land. Visit Encinitas and enjoy beautiful ocean views and a great surfing culture from San Elijo Lagoon on the southern end of this surfer's paradise to Batiquitos Lagoon to the north. San Diego Botanic Garden is a beautiful oasis to visit with an Amazon Rainforest and the largest display of bamboo in the world. Downtown 101 is a coastal shopping district featuring historic architecture, quaint shops, sidewalk cafes, and restaurants. The San Elijo Lagoon Reserve is the largest coastal wetland in San Diego County and is home to nearly 300 different bird species throughout the year. Whether you visit for the surf, history or culture, life is great, no matter what you do in Encinitas.
