Homes in Encinitas
Recognized by National Geographic as one of the top 20 surf towns, Encinitas is located along six miles of gorgeous Pacific coastline just 30 miles from downtown San Diego. Truly an unspoiled and popular suburb in North County, here you will find an idyllic, laid back beach community full of personality with an average year round temperature of 65 degrees. From world class surfing at Swami’s located on the southern end of Encinitas, to the unspoiled San Elijo Lagoon Reserves that protects the rich biodiversity of California’s coastal wetlands and backcountry, to Cardiff State Park, a protected beach in the state park system, there is something here for everyone. Downtown Encinitas, just one block from the local favorite Moonlight Beach, offers a shopping district over 100 years old. Filled with quaint shops, sidewalk cafes and restaurants, you will also discover the La Paloma Theater, which began screening motion pictures in 1928. Summer evenings is a hark back to yesteryear, as classic cars cruise the boulevard and local bands take center stage during the community's Sunday Concerts by the Sea.
There is a wide choice of real estate options for those wishing to live in this wonderful coastal community. While no architectural style takes precedent, buyers can choose from simple beach cottages to more modern, contemporary estates. With a highly regarded school district, a unique sense of history, and authentic beach lifestyle, living in Encinitas is highly desired and truly appreciated.
