Gallery: Carlsbad Beaches
Located just north of Encinitas, Carlsbad beaches are a big attraction for visitors and beginner surfers. The north Carlsbad coastline has series of small beaches and low cliffs right along the Coast Highway, offering prime Pacific Ocean views and easy access to the beaches. Camping at South Carlsbad Beach is the best way to be near the beach and hear the waves at night. Popular beach areas in this region include Tamarack, Warm Water Jetty, and Terramar.
