Begin your day with a walk and self-meditation session at the Self Realization Fellowship Hermitage and Meditation Garden. Once your mind is at ease and your body centered, head to either of the two famous Encinitas Beaches—Moonlight Beach and Swami's Beach. After a lesson at Leucadia Surf School, pick your prime spot on the white sand for hours of endless adventure. From surfing to boogie boarding, building sandcastles to burying the kids (or adults) in the sand, and feeding the seagulls and yourself some delicious local food, you'll find plenty of ways to fill your afternoons.
Numerous mouth-watering eateries are available, and the local grocery store's deli counter is known for its famous sandwiches. If you aren't feeling like going out, pick up some groceries for a homemade meal cooked in the comfort of your Encinitas vacation rental.
When bellies are full, rent a bike to cruise down the coast to San Elijo State Beach or Solana Beach. At each of these beautiful beaches, you can stop for shopping at some of the local boutiques. Once you've picked up some souvenirs, continue on past the Del Mar Race Track to the iconic village of Del Mar.
