Campus Point Beach is a surfer's beach. There are rumors that the beach is closed because the place you would normally enter is closed off for repairs. We headed to the left of the normal entrance (facing the beach) and were able to walk in. People with strollers and wagons were having trouble getting in. The day we were there the water level was low but at high tide part of the beach would have been inaccessible.
Directions: From 101, take the 217 toward UCSB. At the roundabout, go through and head left onto Lagoon Road. At lot 6, go left into the lot and look for a coastal access parking space. Alternately, you can find metered parking across the street on Channel Islands Road.
This can be a great tide pooling beach.
This is well loved by the town's surfers.
If you are social distancing, this beach still has a lot of people coming and going.
Parking in lot 6 is mostly for faculty with just handful of spaces for coastal access. (During these CO-VID 19 days, as long as you buy a pass it seems to be okay for the parking patrol. )
