  • Did the path of Highway 1, from San Francisco to Los Angeles and for sure the best stop was at Butterfly Beach. I saw the most beautiful sunset of my life!! So stop around the time of sunset, and enjoy!

  • Provided you get the tide timing right, you can walk all the way from the Montecito golf club to the Pier in Santa Barbara alone the shore. Very nice walk (or hike or run).  more »

  • Absolutely breathtaking beach. This type of beach is where you dream to live near by or have a wedding. It's one of those beaches that look incredible during its sunset hours. I am in awe at how beautiful the sand, ocean, and scenery just mesh perfectly together. If I was ever in the area again I would definitely visit this beach again.
  • Don't tell everyone but this is one of my favorite beaches in Santa Barbara. Still very beautiful and great place to go see even after the tragic mudslide that we just had. 3 days ago we weren't allowed to go on to the beach but I think it's open now.
  • Sadly, according to KSBY, Butterfly Beach is one of the areas that is being used to deposit some of the mud and debris from the Montecito mudslide. Hopefully by the date of the wedding the ocean will have claimed much of the material that is being dumped there and the area will be open again.
  • Beautiful beach but no facilities. Parking can be hard along the street and the only entrance is the stairs.
  • Beautiful
