Cardiff-by-the-Sea is a popular beach haven with beautiful beaches, great surfing, and campgrounds with a front row seat of the Pacific Ocean. Add charming shops, wonderful cuisine and a vibrant arts section to the mix and you have the perfect place to call home.
Locally known as “Cardiff”, this sought-after area features two miles of Pacific coastline and a relaxing beach town atmosphere. Home to the Lux Art Institute as well as the lush gardens of the Self Realization Center, Cardiff is on the border between Encinitas and Solana Beach and just steps from the ocean.
With many excellent residential neighborhoods in Cardiff, such as the Composer and Walking District located on the ocean side along the I-5 freeway, residents are never far from all the amenities this one of a kind beach town offers.
