5 Reasons I Love Carlsbad
I had never heard of Carlsbad, but by the end of my trip I was calling all my friends, telling them they had to go…
This low-key beach is a year-round destination perfect for a morning stroll or evening bonfire on the coastline. There’s also a lengthy boardwalk if you just want to take in the view without getting sand in your shoes. Looking for something active to do? Try scuba diving, kayaking, windsurfing, fishing, beachcombing or surfing.
The waves might make for an intense swim, but are ideal surfing conditions. You’ll find several surfing schools offering lessons for first-time boarders brave enough to start on the ocean. I wasn’t — but my hubby swears it was worth it!
There are lots of restaurants in the area, but I’ve always loved a good picnic. Tamarack has a reputation for being one of the cleanest beaches, so you can set-up a romantic or family picnic on the unspoiled shores. Spend the day and take in the awe-inspiring sunset that locals swear is different every night; you’ll just have to visit again and again to be sure.
