  • Cardiff Reef & Cardiff State Beach - some of the best surf breaks in the area
  • San Elijo State Beach & Lagoon - Bike, hike, camp, surf, paddleboard and don't miss Bull Taco located at the camp store - the shrimp and chorizo tacos are a "must have".
  • Pacific Coast Grill - For that special occasion or anytime - check the views, the sunsets, the sushi and the cocktails.
  • Tower 13 - Beach, burgers, ice cold brew and pineapple-infused tequila.  Nice way to end the day!
  • Las Olas - You can tell by the constant packed parking lot that this beachside restaurant is a hit - try the chips and salsa and something cold on tap.

And then, of course, there are the homes....
