WHAT TO EXPECT IN ENCINITAS
Encinitas is comprised of more than beautiful beaches and memorable sunsets – those can be found many places in the world.What makes Encinitas so unique is it’s legacy as a classic California beach town that continues to live out of it’s own set of values and ideals.
It’s a place where modern legends of surf, yoga and triathlon culture were born and bred– icons to a generation.
So the weather is (typically) amazing, the natural landscape is diverse and stunning (think lagoons, palm trees, beautiful beaches and hiking trails), and the activities almost endless.
But the real reason you should pick Encinitas for your next vacation is to experience one of California’s last remnants of authentic, soul-surfer beach culture.
So when you come to Encinitas, expect more than a beach – expect to see a whole different way of life. If you bring an open mind and some genuine curiosity and you will certainly experience it for yourself. After all, that’s what Transformative Travel is all about.
