Located on the San Diego Coast, which has been called the Riviera of the West, Cardiff State Beach has a gently sloping sandy beach with warm water. The site offers swimming, surfing and beachcombing.



Beach Wheelchairs

Beach Wheelchairs are now available for patron use.  Check out the wheelchair with a photo identification at the San Elijo State Beach Campground entrance.  There is no fee charged for the use of the wheelchair.  It is available on a first come, first served basis.

 

Mobi Mat

During the summer season, a Mobi Mat is placed at Lifeguard Tower 15 to provide a firm access surface to the mean high tide line.  This mat will permit an easier pathway to access the beach.
