Haskell's Beach

Another Goleta beach is Haskell's Beach near the Bacara. This might win an award for cleanest beach because of its proximity to the hotel. If you are headed "north" on 101, exit Wincester Canyon and head straight onto Calle Real, turn left onto Cathedral Oaks over the freeway and a quick right onto Hollister Ave. Follow Hollister until you see a sign that says beach access and points you to a parking lot near the Bacara tennis courts. Follow the footpath down to the beach. More info.

Pros
There are bathrooms (although they might be demolished soon).
There are mostly calm waves.
It is not crowded.
There are showers (although they might be demolished soon)!

Cons
There is a long walk to the beach from the parking lot.
This is out of the way for most people.
