Cardiff by the Sea

Take a Magic Carpet Ride . . . in Cardiff

Cardiff by the Sea – a beach community located in Encinitas is jam-packed with panoramic ocean views and sandy beaches that seemingly stretch out forever in both directions.  

Sandwiched between other beach towns, surfboards are a regular sight in this historic surfing hotspot.  Cardiff is home to the Cardiff Kook—a surfer statue that’s often criticized, and sometimes revered, as a parody of California’s iconic sport.  Magic Carpet Ride is the official name of the 6-foot high bronze sculpture of a surfer by Matthew Antichevich, and has been nicknamed the Cardiff Kook by locals.  

Cardiff State Beach and its two reefs create excellent breaks for surfing, while its kelp beds are well-suited for diving.  Pitch a tent seaside at San Elijo, the beach in front of the campground is open for day use and is ideal for families.  If you like the idea of oceanfront camping, imagine living in this paradise.
