East Beach is known for its volleyball courts, but it has many other amenities as well! It has one of the only beach playgrounds. This is beach can be crowded especially on the weekend so it is not easy to socially distance.
Directions: The beach is located near the zoo on Cabrillo Boulevard. Take the 101S from downtown/Goleta and take the Garden Street exit. Turn right onto Garden St, then left on Cabrillo Blvd. The beach parking is on your right.
There is a kid's playground.
There is a restaurant with food options.
There are public bathrooms.
There are showers and foot wash stations.
The close parking is self-paid and often hard to come by on popular days.
Food options are expensive and slow.
Bathrooms are not close to the playground and volleyball areas.
It is a more adult area at times because of the volleyball.
You will encounter more tourists here than many beaches.
