Back to Southern California Beach Cities - South.

Encinitas is a small beach town in the north end of San Diego County in Southern California. The town has a main street that looks to be right out of a George Lucas 1950's movie scene, including a city name sign spanning the Coast Highway that welcomes visitors arriving into the north end of town.

Visitor info can be found at 138 Encinitas Blvd.

Get in
Do a quick search to see exact hotel locations.

Encinitas is located just off Interstate Highway 5. Take the Encinitas Blvd exit.

By train
The regional COASTER [1] rail line between San Diego and Oceanside stops in Encinitas. The station is located downtown between C and D streets.

Get around
Almost everything can be reached by foot, including the beach and most restaurants and shopping. Bikes can be rented as well. If you bring a car in you'll want to leave it at the hotel for any local exploring.

A selection of attractions that will be convenient to your hotel.
