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.

To run, bike, roller skate, or walk along the coast of the pacific ocean. I recommend going on the weekday as it can get crowded on weekends.

This bike trail has enough room, as long as you watch where you're going, for everyone. Cruise along the iceplant edged path past the boats, sand, birds chicks, and pets. Plenty to see, eat and breathe in as you peddle yourself down the lane. Worth a rental!

The view of the beach was nice. It was similar to other bike paths that I've seen on the beach. You get a nice view of the ocean. Otherwise, I didn't see anything different about it.
