Cardiff-by-the-Sea is a charming beach community within the city of Encinitas and bordering Solana Beach. Occupying a beautiful stretch of beach, the area is known for its small town atmosphere and its unique variety of coastal restaurants.

Like so many other North County areas, locals prefer the quiet, easy living here and support efforts to keep it that way. Just 25 miles north of the bustling city of San Diego, it seems a world away. Many residents here live on hillsides, enjoying gorgeous ocean views.

There are two hotels in town, fine dining, shops, and of course the beautiful Pacific Ocean which attracts tourists and other north county residents to the area. San Elijo State Beach Campground provides for tent camping above the water. Locals and travelers alike enjoy bird-watching and hiking along the trails in the San Elijo Lagoon, as well as running and biking along the beach-front highway.
