Welcome to San Elijo State Beach
Although San Elijo and Cardiff are separate state park units, they adjoin and can be enjoyed as one. San Elijo State Beach, with two miles of coastline, is mainly a campground, but includes a small day-use lot. Reservations are necessary for the 171 campsites, which fill quickly for holidays and the summer season.
Cardiff State Beach is located south of San Elijo Creek. Developed day-use facilities with outdoor showers and modern restrooms are available. Day-use fees are collected at each beach. “Pipes,” “Turtles,” “Cardiff Reef,” “Georges,” and “Seaside” are major surfing attractions in these state parks. Swimming and scuba diving are also popular activities. Inshore holes and strong rip currents can be dangerous. Contact a lifeguard for suggestions about safe swimming areas.
