Terramar is located in Carlsbad, California. It is a small oceanfront neighborhood community developed by William Cannon in the 1950s. It has its own Association called the Terramar Association, with a set of rules. The Terramar Association has a quarterly newsletter called the Terramar Tides. Terramar has a number of breaks, but is primarily known as a longboard break.

It has private (gated) access to the beach (not all homes in this neighborhood are oceanfront). The beach access consists of a "Deck" that is elevated above the ocean and has benches, tables, BBQ, surfboard rack, and outdoor shower. This is in spite of the right that is enshrined in CA state constitution, which declares that “access to the navigable waters of this State shall be always attainable for the people.” This principle was further established in 1972 when California’s voters created the California Coastal Commission through Proposition 20 and when the Legislature adopted the California Coastal Act in 1976.
