With six miles of rugged coastline and 21.5 square miles of land, Encinitas is a north San Diego County city situated between the San Elijo Lagoon to the south and the Batiquitos Lagoon to the north. It got its name from Encina Canada, Spanish for "hills of live oaks," which describes what Gaspar de Portola saw in 1669 when he led an expedition through the region. The Spanish Governor of Baja California hoped to create a stronghold in California and did so until Mexico laid claim on the land in the 1800s. That reign was short lived and California became a state of the United States in 1850.
Activities for visitors include shopping, eating, sunbathing, swimming, surfing, museums and galleries, meditation and... more travel advice
