West Beach

West Beach is a small beach between the harbor and the pier. It is beautiful and often the beach of Santa Barbara photographs. To get there, take 101S to Castillo St and turn right. Follow Castillo St until it dead ends into Cabrillo Blvd. Turn left to take a chance at parking on the street. The beach is after the harbor and small playground. Turn right to get to the parking lot (take your first left, enter paid parking and follow it through several lots until it dead ends at the launch ramp). More info.

Pros
This is a beautiful, classic Santa Barbara spot.
It is a great volleyball area,
There is a small toddler playground nearby.

Cons
This is where the tourists go. It can be crowded.
There are no bathrooms.
Parking in either paid or difficult to find.
