At Swami's you get a great wrap for lunch. This place is a Encinitas classic! The staff is very friendly. We love the nr 8 wrap!

Entrance is at the south end of Encinitas, by the Self Realization Foundation, which is worth visiting. Parking can be an issue when the surf is up. Paths for running, cycling and walking go south to the beach at Cardiff. Steep cliffs, but good stair...More

This was the first stop of our trip. Lucky enough to find parking and were memorized by the gold flecks in the wet sand. The area was clean with plenty of places to walk, explore, wade and surf.

Clean and quiet, this was hands down our favorite beach. Great for long walks and for plopping down in the sand and watching surfers.

Beautiful view of the beaches and coast below! The wave is mushy and slow and breaks during the summer. Excellent park and lookout spot!

First off, I love the small town feel of Encinitas, that makes Swami's one of the best beaches in SD in general. Mostly locals relaxing, so don't tell everyone but go and enjoy at will!

A beloved surf spot for the locals, with stunning views of the surfers and the Pacific. Parking is free but limited - respect the surfers needs for parking.

On a recent walk between Cardiff and Encinitas, we stopped and took in the sights at the beach. The polynesian style totems, the nice public art, and the awesome views prolonged our stop. This is a gem of a beach.
