Carlsbad Beaches


No matter what activity you enjoy, you’ll find a Carlsbad beach that’s perfect for it. Hiking, biking, diving, surfing, bird watching, rock hunting and more. Or maybe just quiet stroll where stress rolls off your shoulders like the waves roll upon the shore.  You shouldn’t leave Carlsbad without taking a walk on one of our beautiful beaches. Walk on the sand, alongside the seawall, or on the sidewalk of Carlsbad Boulevard for breathtaking ocean views. The seawall starts one block south of Carlsbad Village Drive and continues south for nearly a mile to Tamarack Avenue. It is a 25-30 minute walk round-trip.  Click here to see details about all our great beaches.
