4 Carlsbad Beaches to Visit before Summer is Over

Summer may be nearing a close, but it’s not too late to check out some of the best beaches in California right in your Carlsbad neighborhood. The staff at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics has a few suggestions where you can go to bask in the sun and surf – and show off your latest cosmetic treatment, of course! Check out these four beaches in Carlsbad you need to enjoy before the summer season is over.

Tamarack Beach (Carlsbad State Beach)
This beach has been voted one of the best beaches in the country, as well as tops in the state. Tamarack Beach offers plenty of activities for visitors of all ages, making this the perfect spot for families. The Carlsbad Seawall offers four miles of paved walking and the beach itself features swimming, surfing, kayaking, fishing, windsurfing, and scuba diving. Public restrooms and picnic areas make this location the perfect place to spend a warm California day, complete with a breathtaking sunset at the end.

South Carlsbad State Beach
South State Beach is a popular place for campers, with stairs that lead from the bluff-top campground to the beach. The beach is nestled under rugged cliffs, making it feel rather remote. The wealth of underdeveloped areas surrounding it also lend to the feeling of isolation and serenity. South State Beach is another popular spot for families, but it is also a hot spot for individuals looking for a quiet place to walk or meditate.

South Ponto Beach
This wide beach, also located in an underdeveloped area, offers public restrooms and showers, making it another good choice for visitors of all ages. Beach volleyball is a popular pastime on these sands, but make sure you bring your own net. Other activities include swimming, surfing and sunbathing. South Ponto is also considered one of the best spots for watching the spectacular California sunsets.

Terramar Beach
This hidden beach doesn’t offer many amenities beyond the large waves perfect for surfing. With no public restrooms, Terramar primarily attracts locals and serious surfers to its sandy shores. Located just south of the Carlsbad Power Plant, this hideaway beach is easy to miss if you are not actually looking for it. Once you are there, the rewards of ample room to spread out and awesome surf to explore offer you the rewards of your find.
