Owner description: This nearly five-mile stretch of beach is popular with families but also draws surfers and skin divers to the water and runners and cyclists to the boulevard bordering the beach.

Love love love this beach. The tides are not too bad most of the year, its a long stretch with beautiful homes to look at while walking, people are friendly, usually not too tough to find parking, and most of all it is clean.

This beach is a great place for a run, walk or bicycle. Very clean and obviously some serious surfing up and down the stretch/

Beautiful and clean beach - did not see ANY trash! Loved the walks on the walkway and in the sand and surf edge. Easy access all along the beach road. Looks like surf city out there.

I liked the waves and also the ocean at this beach. It is very beautiful and I loved soaking up the rays.

While in February the water is still very cold (surfers wear wet suits) we still got in about waist deep. It's just windy enough to fly a kite. No problems with questionable people. As a matter of fact, there were plenty of families enjoying the beach just as we were. Good times! Not all stretches of the beach are easy accessible form Carlsbad Blvd because of the cliff. The sunsets from the beach are tremendous!
