Batiquitos Lagoon

Batiquitos Lagoon

The Batiquitos Lagoon is a coastal wetland in southern Carlsbad, California. Part of the lagoon is designated as the Batiquitos Lagoon State Marine Conservation Area, run by the California Department of Fish and Game as a nature reserve.[1]

The Batiquitos Lagoon Foundation is a private non-profit organization that works to preserve the nature center is open daily.[2]

There is a rumor that there is buried treasure in the center of the lagoon's island. Locals say that the island was a place where pirates would trade in the 1500's. Although it is not proven true, many people have been seen bringing shovels with them as they swim or paddle to the island. Up to now, the treasure has not been discovered.
