A Visit to the Batiquitos Lagoon in Carlsbad July 2019

A Pleasant Visit to the Batiquitos Lagoon in Carlsbad July 2019

 

Batiquitos Lagoon

 

We were out driving by a house in Cardiff that I hope to list soon, this past Sunday, and decided to take a walk at the Batiquitos Lagoon in South Carlsbad. We used to walk there regularly when we lived in nearby La Costa but since moving north to the Calavera Hills area it’s not been happening as often.

There was a pretty heavy marine layer, so no sun, which was actually quite nice for a walk. The photos, however, are not as colorful as they might otherwise be. Given it was Sunday afternoon it was pretty quiet with only a few others taking advantage of this beautiful preserve and trails.

 

There is no doubt Batiquitos Lagoon is a treasure for Carlsbad, and residents and others appreciate all that’s been done, and continues to be done, to preserve it, especially those fortunate to live in the Aviara residential area and within a short walk, drive or bike ride to the lagoon. The Batiquitos Lagoon borders Encinitas to the south, and is a wildlife nature preserve with miles of trails to enjoy along the lagoon with great bird watching. There are several parking areas along Batiquitos Drive to access the trails (trails are not paved and are relatviely flat).

There is also a Nature Center that opened in 2016. Daily hours are 9 to 3 (subject to Volunteer availability).

Fishing, swimming and boating are not allowed so it’s a wonderful and peaceful place to take walks, with the lagoon itself to the south and the Aviara Golf Club to the north.

 

The Batiquitos Foundation hosts an annual clean-up event, usually in October or November, where you can volunteer to help, on trails as well as in the lagoon itself via kayak. Stay tuned for updates on the next clean-up this fall 2019 and how to register to participate. Space is limited.
