Cardiff By The Sea Real Estate

Cardiff-by-the-Sea, commonly referred to as Cardiff by residents, is a small community of beachfront and ocean view homes nestled between Encinitas and Solana Beach in North San Diego County. Cardiff was originally developed by Frank Cullen who named it after his wife’s hometown of Cardiff, Wales and gave many streets English names such as Manchester, Glasgow, and Westminster. For many years the town’s only industry was kelp seaweed processing. In 1986 the area was incorporated into the City of Encinitas and now has approximately 11,000 residents. It is just over 30 minutes to downtown San Diego on the I-5 Freeway. The neighborhood has its own K-6 Schools and older students attend schools in the San Dieguito High School District.
