Welcome to Cardiff by the sea

Officially known as Cardiff-by-the-Sea, the Encinitas coastal neighborhood is locally shortened to just Cardiff. Located 30 minutes north of San Diego, Cardiff is bordered by Solana Beach to the south and Encinitas to the north and east. 

Founded in 1911, Cardiff received many of its street names from developer J. Frank Cullen, who named the streets after places in his native British Isles. Cardiff has grown over the past century to a population of just under 12,000 people. The area offers a variety of restaurants and shops.

Like many coastal San Diego towns, Cardiff enjoys pleasant year-round weather and the opportunity to spend a lovely day at the beach throughout the year.

Cardiff is well-known for several great surfing spots, including Swami's and Cardiff Reef. The Cardiff Kook, a statue of a surfer located at San Elijo State Beach, is another popular local landmark. 

Find your new home in Cardiff and enjoy a relaxed, coastal atmosphere on a daily basis. Living in Cardiff is perfect for those who love to be near the water!
