Arroyo Burro County Beach Park, Santa Barbara

(4.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Stroll along the shore at Arroyo Burro County Beach Park, where you can look for whales, swim and surf the waves, or go surf fishing instead. For those who prefer dry land, explore the sandy beach or take a ride along the equestrian trails. Keep in mind that the park is popular with dog owners, so expect some canine visitors. Grassy areas are equipped with picnic tables, but get an authentic experience by joining locals at the onsite restaurant.
