Went camping with a bunch of friends. The burger at the store was excellent. I got mine with bacon and cheese. The beach was nice although there was some tar. Camping was great except for the restrooms by the beach. They were DISGUSTING!!! Showers were clean and the restrooms by the entrance was a lot cleaner. Beware of raccoons!!! Make... More

It was March and the weather was awesome so it was pretty packed with people. Beautiful beach with a downside. We didn't walk on it because we didn't want to get tar on our feet. The drive down there was very beautiful though. The restaurant was a quaint little beach shack for burgers and beach merchandise, but during busy times... More

gorgeous beech, nice drive, but problems with parking. You cannot drive by, you have to get off the main highway 1(PCH) and intentionally drive there. bring your own food and drinks. The campsite not he most convenient one.

I love the quiet drive back to Jalama beach, being a local with such a great beach nearby that serves a mouth watering burger is SO NICE!

This is a beautiful beach, but very windy. We enjoyed watching the wind surfers and the scenery surrounding the park. We stopped to have a jalama burger at the restaurant on the beach and it was delicious. The views from the dining room were especially nice. You can get into the park for an hour for free if you purchase... More

I bought a year long pass and can go enough times to make each visit only a dollar or two. It's the closest beach to Lompoc since VFB closed Surf until October. I'll be going at least every other week. Other beaches near me are crowded even on the weekdays in summer because the kids are out of school, but... More

It is amazing to discover a special place like Jalama Beach! Very isolated from the typical beaches of Southern CA. We stayed at the Abalone group site with 3 other RV's. The site was at the end on the beach front. Amazing views, and crazy Winds are to be expected. Make sure you try the Famous Jalama Beach Burger! It... More

I haven't been here in 15 years. Things have changed a bit... mostly it seems more busy due to the fact that you can reserve online instead of just showing up. The beauty is the same and the facilities are pretty nice.

The drive through Jalama beach road itself is a fascinating experience. Wonderful views along the road. By the time we approached the Jalama beach, we were driving atop a nearby hill and the view of beach from there is literally jaw-dropping. One of the best beaches I have seen in the world. There are very little words to explain the... More
