Cardiff State Beach

Cardiff State Beach

Located on the San Diego Coast, which has been called the Riviera of the West, Cardiff State Beach has a gently sloping sandy beach with warm water. The site offers swimming, surfing and beachcombing.

Dogs are permitted on Cardiff State Beach. All dogs must be on a 6’ leash and under the owner’s control at all times.

Cardiff State Beach is a very popular surfing location in San Diego County. As a result, the parking lot is busy year-round and there is a parking fee. If there is no staff person in the kiosk at the park entrance, the parking fee must be paid at the Automated Pay Machine located in the parking lot near the restroom at Cardiff Reef and near the entrance at the Seaside Parking Lot.

The beach is located one mile south of Cardiff on Old Highway 101.
