Hello anglers! Here’s a suggestion from friends at Cardiff Vacations about extending your time off after a fishing trip with Searcher Sportfishing.

Maybe consider staying in the beautiful beach town of Encinitas! With a plethora of fun-filled activities Encinitas is your best bet for a great time with the family or friends.

Encinitas Beaches

Stretching from South Carlsbad State Beach in the North all the way to Torrey Pines State Beach, the beaches in Encinitas are perfect for all sorts of fun activities like: surfing, swimming, beachcombing and more.

Take your kids out when the tide is low and have some fun in the tide pools. Places like Swami’s or Cardiff State Beach are just two examples of spots where you can explore the tide pools and or maybe take surfing lessons from the many surfing schools in the area. If you are already an experienced or novice surfer there is no better place on Earth to catch a wave.

Kid Friendly Activities

There are many beautiful activities to do with kids in Encinitas after a fishing trip. If you didn’t bring them on board for your fishing trip, now is the time to spend some mellow quality time pier fishing. You can take them out to Oceanside Pier which is arguably the best spot in Northern County San Diego to go fishing. It stretches almost 2000 feet into the Pacific Ocean.

Take your family for a trip to the San Diego Botanic Garden and stroll through the 37 acres of rare bamboo groves, desert gardens, and tropical rainforest. The garden exhibits California native plants, Mediterranean climate landscapes, and a subtropical fruit garden.

San Dieguito County Park is a 125-acre park located on the border between Del Mar and Solana Beach. This place is locally popular for barbecues, weddings, and other group gatherings. Other facilities include a basketball court, hiking trails, a gazebo, and a playground.

San Elijo Lagoon Nature Center has a boardwalk pathway to follow through a lagoon, filled with educational material to read. Serene and not very crowded, this is a great learning experience for the kiddos.
