Unique Experiences on Land and Sea

Just 12 miles south of the popular city of Santa Barbara lies an expanse of white sandy beaches at Carpinteria State Beach. Spend the day observing the wild habitats of harbor seals, gray whales, and dolphins, or simply relax on the shore with a good book in hand at one of Carpinteria State Beach cabins.

  • 1. A Seal Sanctuary

    This conveniently located two-mile round-trip hiking trail starts at the freeway off-ramp. Park your car and take off on foot to the ocean where you’ll enjoy the peaceful views and the scent of eucalyptus trees. When you reach the beach, kick off your shoes and take a seat to observe the harbor seals from the overlook.

  • 2. Tar Pits Park

    If you’re the adventurous type, put on an old pair of shoes and hike over the unique coastal rock formations to Carpinteria Tar Pits, the natural asphalt lakes and fountains of Carpinteria. Be careful, it’s sticky!

  • 3. Salt Marsh Nature Park

    This natural wonder of water and vegetation has a convenient boardwalk for easy walking. Join a nature tour to see all the plants, birds, and manta rays in the area.
