Discover Cardiff By The Sea

Cardiff By The Sea is a beach community in southern San Diego County. As a planned community with a walkable beach and a lagoon with a boardwalk surrounding it, the city got its name through its planner's Welsh wife. Because of the year-round mild climate, you'll find plenty of casual dining restaurants featuring outdoor seating. The cuisine is centered around fresh Pacific seafood, especially Asian fusion and sushi. Coffee and tea houses are also popular in the area, and weekend mornings often find the coffee bars bustling. Italian and Mexican foods also provide a strong influence, particularly at the beachside restaurants. Two of the regional specialties include tilapia scampi and fish tacos with fresh tomatoes.
