Del Mar Vacation in Cardiff-by-the-Sea | Cardiff Vacations


Cardiff-by-the-Sea is located just north of Del Mar. Del Mar is most famous for its renowned horse racing track, which is less than a mile from the ocean and is often referred to as "the place where the surf meets the turf". The Del Mar Racetrack is a thoroughbred horse racing venue large enough to accommodate nearly 50,000 spectators. The racing season starts in mid-July, August and ends in early-September.

Due to the racetrack's popularity, Del Mar can be quite busy, especially during the racing season and it can be quite hard to find accommodations and enjoy a relaxing stay. Del Mar residents and travelers choose our vacation rentals in Cardiff-by-the-Sea for close proximity to the beach, stunning sunsets and ocean view, location and local attractions.
