Padaro Beach


Padaro Beach Beach is located off Santa Claus Lane in Summerland.  To reach it, take 101S to the Santa Claus Lane exit. Continue straight onto Santa Claus Lane and park where you can! Cross the train tracks using your own discretion and follow one of the many paths to the beach. More info here.

Pros
Parking is good during the week especially in the morning.
This beach can be less crowded than some beaches.
The waves are good for body surfing.
You can head over to Padaro Beach Grill for lunch.

Cons
Parking in the summer and on weekends can be almost impossible. Arrive early.
There are no lifeguards. This beach has waves that are not as gentle as some area beaches.
You must cross train tracks to walk in and the tracks might make you nervous even on the beach.
You must carry stuff a ways to come here.
There is a portapotty but no bathrooms.

These pictures were taken on the weekend in July.

Rocks are between the beach and tracks in some places.

Park and cross the tracks.
