Cardiff Information and Highlights

Here's a quick rundown of our list:

“Caerdydd Glan y Môr", Welsh for Cardiff’s true name. A tiny spark of its magical spirit.

Cardiff is a wonderful and at often times incredible beach community located in Encinitas. Border by Solana Beach to the south and a mere ride away from San Diego proper. Cardiff is one of Encinitas’ most sought after and highly acclaimed regions.

Walkable and lovely pathways through a myriad of nature endowed mazes have constantly seduced its residents and visitors. Cardiff’s community treasures its many vistas and panoramas, paying particular attention and emphasis to its reefs and aquatic alleys.

Cardiff’s history remotes back to the year 1911. On that precise dar, Cardiff defrocked its farming state and started to become the city it is today. This transformation was guided by a local real estate titan called J. Frank Cullen. He broke ground and started building new homes in the bluffs and regions. It was his wife, a native of Wales, who named the area on account of its bearing an appearance to her former childhood home…. A local musician is to blame for giving the city its famous, “…By The Sea” addendum.
