Tide pools at Terramar

“It is advisable to look from the tide pool to the stars and then back to the tide pool again.” — John Steinbeck

Getting there

The tide pools at Terramar are located at the western end of Cerezo Road in Carlsbad, California. Walk down the stairs and take a right.

When to go

Tide pools are best explored during a minus low tide when the surf is small.  Check the tide tables.
