 Welcome To Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California

All Rights Reserved - Copyright Jim ClarkCardiff by sea is a community found in the city of Encinitas, 95 miles to the south of Los Angeles and 25 miles North of San Diego. The name Cardiff was derived from Wales. The community was founded by famous developer J. Frank Cullen whose wife was a Wales native. It was named in honor of Cullen's wife but many of its streets were given English names. The last bit "by the sea" was added much later by a German musician who also happened to be a community developer.

Among the most beautiful of natural scenery is a walkable beach and lagoon. The proximity to commercial services, educational material and recreational facilities is just perfect as the community is equipped with classic restaurants, libraries, a post office and a market all within a walking distance.

Beach side dining is a wonderful experience at Cardiff by the sea. Restaurant Row offers a wide range of delicacies with Italian, Mexican, and California foods available. Sea food is the common choice for most and is given more emphasis.

For lovers of camping, the san Elijo beach Campground offers some of the best campsites along the beach. Also available is a beach parking service during the day and a lifeguard service.

Other recreational facilities in the community includes the glen park. It provides basketball and tennis courts, picnic tables and some additional space for a children play area. Soccer and baseball fans can choose to use one of the multiple fields available at the Cardiff Sports Park.

At the entrance of San Elijo Lagoon lies one surf hotspot, the Cardiff Reef. It is situated alongside the historic Highway 101 and offers a fair view of the breaking sea waves where different surfers display their diverse skills. Bordering the downtown area is the Carpentier parkway, a community volunteer project.

Cardiff-by-the-Sea offers so much unique and wonderful features, one cannot get enough. The nature is unbelievable, the climate is moderate and welcoming. It has a coastline 2 miles long along the pacific, to the south a 900 acre Elijo Lagoon and an outstanding surfing environment.
