This path goes all along the beach and everywhere you'd want to see in Santa Barbara. The marina is really interesting to stop and watch all the activity for a while; and the beach is in great shape and really great for an afternoon of relaxing. If you like biking, you shouldn't miss it.

I love the idea of the cycle path and enjoyed a safe ride along the front comparing old and new sights.

We rented some bikes and did the Cabrillo Bike Path. It's not very long but is great for those who don't expect to do a 20 mile bike ride. You can ride along the beach and then on to the bird sanctuary. I recommend it on a weekday, however, because it is packed on Saturday and Sunday near the wharf.

The Cabrillo pathway runs along the side of the beach and ocean to and past most of the main ocean-front attractions in the city. It's well-used by bikes and skaters and can get a bit congested at weekends and on holidays; but generally it works well. Getting onto it can be a bit of a mission with a big bike... More

This is one of my favorite places in town. Walk, ride or run it's a great place to be if you are visiting Santa Barbara.

We borrowed cruiser bikes from our hotel and had a great ride along the waterfront and out onto the wharf. It was a blast.

We really enjoyed the ocean view and scenery of the Cabrillo bike path. It's very "doable" for the whole family, and easy even for us, though we hadn't been on bikes in many years. We rode from the Four seasons, past State Street, and up the hill to the end, and we weren't tired at all.

This is a must do in SB, even if you just walk it. The path is smooth and clean but you have to be alert to other users when biking as it can get very crowded on the weekends.

Went for a bike ride to the Marina and walked out on the Spit (need to walk there) at the end of the Marina. Sailboat race going on, then rode to East beach for Art show.

Walk, ride or roll along the beach from the main pier to past the skate park to East Beach, the Cabrillo Bath House and the East Beach Grill - an outdoor cafe that has the best banana blueberry pancake breakfast right at the beach.
