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.

Hi Jeff- what a beautiful area even with the marine layer. I would love to add that beautiful view to our morning walks.

Hi Kathy Streib 

It really IS a beautiful area, very close to the beach, close to the freeway and a busy residential area, and yet it feels a world apart. Every time I walk there I say "why don't we do this more often!"

Morning Jeff.

I know we missed a lot of sights on our last visit to California. Pity, we only had a limited time

What a gorgeous place, Jeff. And what a wonderful way to spend time on a Sunday afternoon. (Good luck in getting that listing... a good excuse to come back to the lagoon.)

It looks like a spot that is one of those hidden gems - right in the middle of everything but, gives you the sense that your miles away from everything. Love the views and know that you will have that listing secured in no time! 

BTW, the video gave me an error message, just FYI.

Happy Thursday, Jeff!

That definitely looks like a beautiful place, I am glad that you had an enjoyable day there!

Good morning Jeff Dowler, CRS - living close to that preserve increases a quality of life as as Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD would say you have nature as a neighbor.

Aw, what a lovely spot to get a mega-dose of nature. I'm guessing you enjoyed it immensely. I tried to watch the video, but it wouldn't link.  D

Hi James Dray 

Well there is only so much time, and California is a huge state with so many things to see and do. I am still exploring, even in the San Diego area, and I have lived here 14 years!

Hope you had a wonderful time in your travels!

Hi Nina Hollander 

It's really quite an oasis in a busy area, and always a pleasure to take walks. Yep, hoping that listing will come through, too!

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS 

It really is that way - you feel like you are in another world, which is most pleasant given the crowded area here by the beaches.

That's weird about the video - I have tried accessing from several browsers and no problems. I will try to reload it. Maybe it's an AR issue!

Thanks Brian England 

I always enjoy it, and when there always wonder why I don't take more time to appreciate it.

Jeff

An excellent point Grant Schneider 

I have sold several homes in the area and having the lagoon and trails close by is a big plus for many people.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD 

Thanks for stopping by. It really is nice to have this preserve, and others we have in the area and just minutes away from where we live.

I'm sorry about the video! I did not have problems viewing. I just reloaded it...wonder if it's an AR editor issue - Debe had issues too!
