Let’s do the 5 w’s:
What? A beautiful beach situated in a
Where? Swami’s is on Coast Hwy. 101 in Encinitas, just 25 minutes or so north of downtown San Diego – about an 8 minute walk from the Lumberyard which has an array of pubs, bars, cafes, and restaurants at the intersection of Coast Hwy. 101 and K Street
Why? Why would you not want to? You can see beautiful spiritual places such as the buildings and amazing grounds of the Self Realization Fellowship
When? Go there anytime you want fresh air and beautiful surroundings.
Who? Encinitas is for everyone, but truth be told…..I think surfers like it a lot.
What makes me think that? Well, take a look at these pictures – there’s memorials to surfers.
(Okay, this one is upside down and since I’m posting from my phone again, I’ll have to correct it later).
Chandi likes to think she’s surfing!
Lastly, there’s stairs down to the beach
There’s even a road crossing sign that says Swami’s Pedestrian Xing

Beautiful pictures. Curious about the name Swami 🙂
Hi Dilip, it’s wonderful to hear from you! Thanks for your comment, and I’m glad that you liked the pictures. The beach got it’s name from Swami Yogananda Paramahansa (who specialized in yoga and meditation) who founded the Self Realization Foundation – some of the pictures of the SRF buildings are in my post. However, the grounds of SRF are a vision indeed and maybe one day I’ll do a post just on the grounds that resemble Paradise on Earth. At least that’s how I imagine paradise to be. I hope you have a fabulous week!
I responded from my phone and have a correction: it’s supposed to be Swami Paramahansa Yogananda.
I was there in July 2011 at SRF retreat. I am a member of YSS/ SRF. I re-lived my stay at the paradise, thank you Ms Kaur for the coverage.
You are very welcome. The gardens and the surrounding area to me are paradise indeed. Thank you for commenting.
