Stumbled on this park on the coastline drive. Views of sailboats, sunbathers, surfers and kiteboarders. Enjoy Stearn's Wharf then head a bit north and relax and enjoy the view...

A great place for couples, singles or families. Picnic areas with ample parking and BBQ sites. If you walk from the top down to the pier and back it is about 3 1/2 miles with a good hill mixed in. Great ocean views .

My son had a surfing lesson here that was arranged by the Biltmore Hotel concierge. It was excellent.

There is a lot of parking at various places along this very long beach/park. Some of it is 90 minute free parking and some of it is $2/hour. There are picnic tables in some areas as well as commercial venues for food and drink. And grills set up near the tables. We were there on a very nice day so... More

Visited with guests as tide was coming in, surfers were trying to catch waves, dolphins jumping about, rain had washed everything clean, sun was out. What a peaceful spot to begin our tour of SB

We live in Oxnard but love to drive up to Santa Barbara for a treat. This late afternoon we stopped at Shoreline Park with the intention to look for whales. The park was full of families grilling and playing. A wonderful, beautiful day in the park. We had read that you could possibly see whales from the shore in that... More

Views are amazing at sunset. Walk down to the beach and take some photos as the sun is going down. Beautiful and calm. Lots of dogs running around.

Away from the tourist area. Wonderful place to stroll or sit and read or look at the beautiful scenery. Parking is easy. Bathrooms are available. Nice place to spend a morning.

Just off of Shoreline Drive, this park provides a wonderful view of the coastline. It is worth a stop and a chance to grab some photos.

Bike path for walking or small vehicles is a great way to take a stroll, see the ocean, and relax! Restaurants on the piers are fine, typical touristy stuff, and there isn't much "to do" unless you are booking a boat or fishing tour. There is the Little Toot boat taxi for a silly $5/pp ride if you're not up... More
