My family usually does mountain camping but a friend invited us, so.... We stayed on site 70 and like any beach camp spot, you are right up against your neighbors, but this site had some shrubbery separation. Being the second row from the beach the wind was not bad at all. Bathrooms kept clean and trash was emptied regularly. WiFi... More

Jalama Beach is usually not too packed and the weather is typically nice out there. It's a short drive from Lompoc which is nice when Surf Beach isn't so accommodating for beach-goers. Also, Jalama Cafe has great burgers.

Jalama Beach is a beautiful rugged beach situated an hours drive north of Santa Barbara. It has high cliffs and beautiful beaches with beautiful views in all directions. It is distinct from many of the other beaches in the area in the rugged coastline and high winds. It is a great place for recreation and photography.

Beautiful rugged coastline, units for rental, friendly staff... Out of the way, but more and more people are finding their way there.

Jalama Beach is a gem few people know about due to it's size and long drive. The beach is small, as are the campsights but the beach is beautiful. Not to miss the BEST hamburgers in the county at the park store. There are tar balls so beware as they can get in your feet or on your shoes.

A decent beach, small campsites. Lots of wind. Found a lot of scary bizarre looking spiders, small versions of those things in the Stephen King move called THE MIST.

I was slightly annoyed by the price to just park and hang out for a couple hours but it was beautiful so whatever. The drive there is pretty and the beach is surrounded by dunes. When I got there, I found a sand dollar and watched kite boarders. The waves looked like a blast and I wished I had brought... More

This is a favorite beach for several reasons. The winter rains accent the green rolling hills sprinkled with wild flowers along the road to the beach. Besides a wonderful wide beach on which to walk the additional slough provides a extra treat. And then the park store makes the bestest sloppy hamburger in the county. So I love to go... More
