about TOWER 13

Tower 13 surfboard picture logo

Cardiff Beach Bar @ Tower 13 is a beach/sports bar, owned by locals with an attitude that “when you’re here, you’re a local too”. Beach side dining and drinks at it's best. We serve quality gourmet food from an extensive menu along with a great view of the Pacific Ocean, directly across from the sandy beach at lifeguard tower 13 in beautiful Cardiff by the Sea. 


When you come to Tower 13 you’ll find a chill beach vibe to complement our two outdoor patios, and our attentive and friendly staff will help you find your perfect libation from our selection of great wine and cocktails and our 27 beers on tap (the majority of which are local craft beers!). To make things even better we have 30 TVs for viewing your favorite sports teams, shuffleboard, pinball, pool, Foosball, Jenga, and fun events so you can get your groove on.  Stop by and let us show you why we are a true San Diego destination.

“No reason to pack a picnic when you go to the beach. Just walk across the street and get fun food and drinks. Nachos are very tasty. Mexican mai tai is so good and packs a punch.”
