When we visit Santa Barbara, we try to walk this beach most days. Lots of cute dogs and nice dog owners, plus a great breakfast place add to the great views on this beach.

If you like dogs, this is your beach. If you like quiet beaches without the risk of stepping in doo or being affronted by an assortment of other people's dogs... Arroyo Burro is not your beach. Good owners follow the leash rules, but it seems...More

Lovely coastline and beach, but was surprised to find that dogs are allowed everywhere on this beach, off leash in some areas.

A county park with free parking, though the lot sometimes fills up, e.g. on summer weekends. Great place to go for a long walk on the beach. The cliffs hide almost all of the nearby houses, making it seem that one is far away from...More

This was a very nice beach to get to hang out on and explore. Especially since our dog was welcome too. This happened to be his first ocean beach. He was a bit confused, I think because of the salty water.

We bike here from out Sant Barbara motel, and thoroughly enjoyed out stay. Started walking south along the beach, saw some cool beach art, and got stopped by the incoming tide. Plan to go back soon.
