Encinitas Lifestyle

Just north of Solana Beach and 25 miles north of San Diego, Encinitas is a quintessential beach town with an artsy, welcoming atmosphere and six miles of shoreline. The charming waterfront community is also known as one of California’s best surfing towns.

Four of the most sought after communities in Encinitas are Leucadia, with its secluded beaches, La Costa, which features a world class resort and spa and pristine golf course, the upscale residential suburb of Olivenhain, and Cardiff, a quaint hillside neighborhood in the south of Encinitas known for its dramatic cliffs and lengths of pristine sandy coastline.

Home to a vibrant surfing culture, Encinitas is even mentioned in the Beach Boys’ song Surfin’ USA

Rather hip and energetic, Encinitas is a dining and shopping hot spot. Popular shops along El Camino serve as the lifeblood of North County retail, attracting visitors from across Southern California. At the south end of Encinitas is the Self Realization Fellowship, founded in 1937 by Swami Paramahana Yogananda and recognized by its striking architecture.

Encinitas is known for its beautiful lagoons and dazzling landscape. It’s also a first-choice destination for its boutique hotels and high-end spas. Residents enjoy close proximity to excellent amenities including the Encinitas Ranch Golf Course, San Diego Botanic Garden, and Moonlight Beach (a hotspot for community events). And the Leucadia Farmers’ Market is just a short drive away.

Encinitas Real Estate

Real estate in Encinitas is similar to the housing stock in Del Mar. It features diverse options, with some neighborhoods that are master planned and some that are more eclectic. The neighborhood of Encinitas Ranch is a highly sought-after community on a golf course, and a defining pocket of Encinitas.
