                      • Carpinteria State Beach View on map

                        Rated as one of America's top 20 beaches, Carpinteria’s sandy stretch of oceanfront offers miles of gorgeous beach for swimming, surfing, fishing, tide pool exploring and camping. Harbor seals and dolphins can be seen, as well as an occasional gray whale. Tide pools contain starfish, sea anemones, crabs, snails, octopuses and sea urchins. This long stretch of sand is known as one of the world’s safest beaches, the gradual incline producing little or no rip currents.

                      • Linden Avenue View on map

                        Lush, tree-lined Linden Avenue, Carpinteria’s main street to the beach, is one of the most charming downtown streets in all of California. A lovely backdrop for the weekly farmers market, it's also host to larger events such as the annual Avocado Festival each October as well as the wonderful old American car show, Rods and Roses, held every June. Everything you need is within walking distance; beach, grocery, fitness studio, city pool, skate park, art gallery, restaurants, and shops. The exciting dining options vary from Italian to Thai, vegan to steak house, Japanese to Mexican, seafood to beach burger, wine bar to micro brewery, shaved ice to baked goods and candy.

                      • Harbor Seal Preserve View on map

                        One of the most interesting secrets of Carpinteria is the Harbor Seal Preserve, which is home to almost 100 adult seals who give birth to their cubs on the Carpinteria shoreline. The beach is closed 750 feet on either side of the preserve from December through May. The seals are there all year long, but in the spring the cubs don't have the thick layer of fat that they need to protect themselves from the cold ocean waters. You can visit the Preserve via the bluffs. The seals are fascinating to watch as they move in and out of the water, bask in the sun, argue amongst themselves and dive for fish.

                      • Tar Pit Park View on map

                        The Tar Pits Park is one of the real treasures of the Carpinteria Parks Department. Many locals don't even know about it. There are wonderful walking trails, vegetation restored as close to its natural state as possible, spectacular views and a real sense of privacy. You can usually see seals and sometimes dolphins in the water. The birds are numerous and varied. Early explorers observed Chumash Indians building their large ocean-going canoes, called tomols, along these banks. You can still see the natural asphaltum oozing from the rocks.

                        Carpinteria's 110 acre Salt Marsh Nature Park is home to many rare and endangered plants and birds. It provides sanctuary for close to 200 bird species. Of all the ways to experience nature in Carpinteria, a docent-led or self-led tour, on bike or foot, of the Salt Marsh Nature Park is perhaps the most rewarding. Free docent led tours are offered every Saturday @ 10 am.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Lush, tree-lined Linden Avenue, Carpinteria’s main street to the beach, is one of the most charming downtown streets in all of California. A lovely backdrop for the weekly farmers market, it's also host to larger events such as the annual Avocado Festival each October as well as the wonderful old American car show, Rods and Roses, held every June. Everything you need is within walking distance; beach, grocery, movie theater, spa, fitness studio, city pool, skate park, art gallery, restaurants, and shops. The exciting dining options vary from Italian to Thai, vegan to steak house, Japanese to Mexican, seafood to beach burger, wine bar to micro brewery, shaved ice to baked goods and candy. Carpinteria also offers a local electric shuttle that, for a 25 cent fare, will take you along the beach and all of the major shopping areas in town. The Amtrak Pacific Surfliner offers five trains a day coming into Santa Barbara from the south with stops at Carpinteria’s wonderful little train depot. Rated as one of America's top 20 beaches, Carpinteria’s sandy stretch of oceanfront offers miles of gorgeous beach for swimming, surfing, fishing, tide pool exploring and camping. Harbor seals and dolphins can be seen, as well as an occasional gray whale. Tide pools contain starfish, sea anemones, crabs, snails, octopuses and sea urchins. This long stretch of sand is known as one of the world’s safest beaches, the gradual incline producing little or no rip currents. Boogie board and inner tube rentals, combined with a large green park, sand volleyball courts and picnic areas make this a popular locals spot on the weekends. Heading northwest along the beach you will discover a local surf spot and kayaking area, plus the Carpinteria Salt Marsh Nature Park. These 110 acres of prime ocean front land provide sanctuary for close to 200 bird species, including many endangered species. The Tar Pits Park is one of the real treasures of the Carpinteria Parks Department. Many locals don't even know about it. There are wonderful walking trails, vegetation restored as close to its natural state as possible, spectacular views and a real sense of privacy. You can usually see seals and sometimes dolphins in the water. The birds are numerous and varied. Early explorers observed Chumash Indians building their large ocean-going canoes, called tomols, along these banks. You can still see the natural asphaltum oozing from the rocks. The Carpinteria Bluffs are 52 acres of beautiful coastal property that features fabulous views of the Santa Ynez mountains, the ocean and the Channel Islands. You can access the Seal Rookery from here. It is also home to such birds as the White-tailed Kite, the Loggerhead Shrike, American Kestrel, and Red-Tailed and Cooper hawks. Native plants include coastal sage scrub and stipa grasslands as well as several stands of non-native but impressive eucalyptus. You can start your walk here (on middle to low tide), walk along the beach all the way to the Salt Marsh Estuary and back. It's about a two mile walk on clean white sand and probably one of the most beautiful anywhere. One of the most interesting secrets of Carpinteria is the Harbor Seal Preserve, which is home to almost 100 adult seals who give birth to their cubs on the Carpinteria shoreline. The beach is closed 750 feet on either side of the preserve from December through May. The seals are there all year long, but in the spring the cubs don't have the thick layer of fat that they need to protect themselves from the cold ocean waters. You can visit the Preserve via the bluffs. The seals are fascinating to watch as they move in and out of the water, bask in the sun, argue amongst themselves and dive for fish. The south edge of Carpinteria is home to the famous Rincon Beach, known to surfers world wide as one of the planet’s best point breaks. Northwest of the city is Padaro Beach or Santa Claus Lane, which is more of an unofficial beach break known primarily to locals.
