I Street Viewpoint



One of Encinitas' hidden viewpoint gems (be sure to explore all of the great viewpoints between Swami's Beach and Moonlight Beach!). Great spots to check the waves, enjoy a picnic or take in a sunset. In the winter months, the Encinitas viewpoints are a great vantage point to spot whales on their migration along the coast.
