"Enlightenment Capital of San Diego"

Yoga classes, SRF Gardens, nearby spiritual centers, lots of enlightening people hail from this locality. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here and look forward to returning soon. Swami's is the place to see & be seen, both the cafe and the beach. Moonlight beach is awesome. You can be a pedestrian in downtown Encinitas or go inland a couple miles to avoid the coastal "marine layer" or "May gray/June gloom" which lasted from January to June the years I was there. Nestled between Carlsbad and Solana Beach, which is next to Cardiff and Del Mar, just North of La Jolla. Dance Church on Sundays, Seaside Church, SRF services, and more to get your meditative groove on. Health oriented area will have you rejuvenated in no time. Surfers paradise this side of Hawaii. Closest to Hawaii you can get on the mainland. I don't think Florida counts on this point. Best Lobster Korma at an Indian Restaurant there.
