TRY THE JALAMA BURGER

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

We read a review that the county park beach store had the best burger in the area; therefore, we drove the 14 winding miles to see if this park really had the best burger. Guess what, it does and the hot dog is just as good. The park is on the beach and has a $10 daily fee. That said,... More

Wow, imagine our surprise after a long fwy drive and then a 14 mi. winding, rural road to make the last turn and spy this incredible secluded place with outstanding views, miles of beach and shale/ sandstone ancient bluffs to enjoy! Very windy so dress warm and bring tent stakes. Important to note that there is a great store but... More

You really have to want to get to this place...it's 30 miles off the beaten track, reachable by only a narrow, winding road, but it is WORTH IT!!!! Great surfing and the famous Jalama Burgers at the Beach Store. This is where many surfing scenes from the film "Big Wednesday" were filmed. It is totally isolated, even miles from the... More
