Carpinteria Beach


Carpinteria Beach is considered one of the safest beaches locally with calm waves. It is easy walking distance from the charming town of Carpinteria with food and shope nearby.

Directions: From Santa Barbara, take the 101S and exit Lyndon Ave. Turn right onto Lindon and follow it all the way to the end. There is street parking here. Or turn left onto 6th Ave and right onto Palm Ave (3rd street) for the parking lot.

Pros
The waves are generally calm and good for little people to play.
There is plenty of parking (although the best parking in entered through Palm Ave not Lindon Ave).
There are bathrooms (individual stalls).
There are showers (disabled during the current drought).
There are lots of food options nearby.

Cons
It is a bit of a drive from Santa Barbara/Goleta (not very far but not as convenient).
It can be a walk to tht beach over the bluff along the pathways.
