Carlsbad is a fairly new and growing city yet its history as a settlement dates back to mid 1760s when Spanish explorers landed in the area. Today, it is just now getting its wings as a modern day city with schools, stores, homes, and restaurants going up all the time. Year after the year the city has grown until now the population of Carlsbad is well over 110K people. Though it is a very affluent community where the average home is listed at double the statewide average, the atmosphere is very laidback and easy - likely attributable to the Zen SoCal surfer culture. Speaking of surfers, the area has more than its fair share of pristine beaches. What attracts pro and amateur surfers to Carlsbad mostly though is the sparseness of the beaches. Unlike many of the beaches in San Diego where tourists and residents are flooding to the beach on the weekends, Carlsbad beaches offer seclusion.
Some of the Best Beaches

Whether strolling the beaches or driving along the coast, you are never far from some of the best beaches in San Diego County in Carlsbad. Any time of year, you will see serious surfers looking for the best place to hang ten right here in Carlsbad. Yet surfing is not the only past time for this active and vibrant community. There are plenty of places to water-ski, to paddle board, and to kayak. Perhaps the best feature of Carlsbad beaches is their thin crowds. Unlike places closer to the heart of San Diego, Carlsbad beaches are much more secluded and less populated than most other beaches in San Diego. Plus Carlsbad is home to the State Beach where you can go fish or boat out into the ocean.
