Beaches in Carlsbad

Carlsbad California Beaches
Enjoy an afternoon on a beautiful Carlsbad beach - some of the most pristine beaches in California. Complimentary chairs, umbrellas, and towels are available for resort guests.  Morning coffee or afternoon picnics are also available for purchase.  


Here in Carlsbad we pride ourselves on our picturesque seaside.  There's no better way to experience the Pacific Coast than from one of our beaches where you can relax, camp, surf, picnic, or even get married!  A few of our most popular beaches that you absolutely must see are:


Carlsbad State Beach - One of Carlsbad's most beloved beaches, Carlsbad State Beach offers a dog-friendly section (most beaches in Carlsbad do not allow dogs), showers, parking, and camping via reservation


Encinitas - Encinitas is a Southern California favorite for many reasons.  Whether you're a surfer, volleyball enthusiast, swimmer, or just want to sunbathe, the beaches in Encinitas offer a wide variety of seaside activities perfect for families and vacationers looking to relax in the famous SoCal sun. 


Moonlight State Beach - It's impossible to dislike Moonlight, even if you're not necessarily a beach person.  Spectacular sunsets, overlooks, showers, firepits, volleyball courts, and a great crowd make this sparklingly clean beach one of our favorites.  Throw in the fact that Moonlight has a fully-staffed and active lifeguard team, picnic tables, a park, snackshack, ample parking, and conveniently located bathrooms, and you can bet this is the must-see beach for your next trip to the Carlsbad/San Diego area!
