Take time to visit this park! It was clean, beautiful and family friendly. The park ranger was super friendly and gave us great tips on local attractions.
The colored rocks are a great attraction and a great souvenir!!
These beautiful beaches are some of the best in California worth a visit if you're in the area. The beaches are wide the beaches are open and there's plenty of room to Players Sports and you can walk along the beach from many many miles...More
We, two adults and two kids, enjoyed this beach immensely. Great for posting up with some beach chairs and kickin it while the kids make sand castles and play in the waves. Better for kids at low tide. Volleyball nets had plenty of activity and...More

I was in Carlsbad in October on business. Went to Carlsbad beach and enjoyed a lovely stroll along the beach, probably walked 5 miles or so on it. Great way to kill some time and a change from sitting in hotel bars and restaurants.

Hi, I am a Carlsbad resident and my husband is 98 years old. We like to park near the Best Western and walk the sidewalk above the beach. There is also a sidewalk down close to the sand, with a sloping asphalt path down to it. Up until about 2 years ago, we walked there, as it is easier to hear the waves and watch ground squirrels. However, the sidewalk is easy and relatively flat. Most of Carlsbad is flat and walkable, including with a walker or cane. We often also walk above the flower fields, even when they are not in bloom. This gives a different view of the ocean. To get there, drive south on the Coast Hwy to Cannon Rd or Palomar Airport Road and turn left. On Cannon, you would turn right onto Legoland Drive and then keep right on Armada rather than continuing to Legoland. Park anywhere along the road there and walk. Also, the Gemological Institute of American allows people to visit the museum part of the Institute, with AT LEAST ONE DAY's notice. Look it up on line and contact them with the day you would like to come. I think the hours for guests are 1 - 3:30 pm, M-Thurs. This is fascinating if you are at all interested in gems, rocks, petrified wood, etc. If you turn on Palomar Airport Rd, you'd go to the traffic signal past Costco (on the right) and turn left onto Armada.
