The locals simply call this laid back beach community Cardiff, the picture of quintessential coastal Southern California with beautiful beaches and mild, sunny weather. The community, the smallest in the North County area, is situated along Interstate 5 on the southern side of Encinitas, just north of the San Elijo Lagoon.

Cardiff is best known for Cardiff State Beach, San Elijo State Beach campground and the popular surfing spots from Cardiff Reef to the iconic Swami's, one of the premier right point breaks in Southern California. Its 2 miles of beaches are popular year-round. 

It's a safe, sunny, laid-back location where the Cardiff residents take pride in maintaining the standard of their town through a non-profit community organization. Depending on what area of Cardiff you're in, you can find ocean view homes, condos within walking distance to the beach, and more traditional So Cal tract homes just east of the I-5.
