The north county coast is composed of a series of small beaches divided by sea walls. The cliffs here are relatively low and in most places the Coast Highway passes right next to the shore, offering an unobstructed view of the sea and open access to the beach. From world famous spots like Swami's (and it's neighboring dining like Swami's Cafe
) and Carlsbad by the Sea, the beaches are filled with expert surfers, sun bathers and running groups year round who enjoy the bike paths and specialty, local diners.
