Dog Beach!
Aug 2021
If you are a dog lover, this is like going to Disneyland!
A beautiful beach with an off-leash dog area. Watching them play together in the surf is such a joy.

Great Beach
Apr 2021
Great beach. Beautiful sunset views and wide-open spaces to stretch out and have fun. Took my family here for a day at the beach and was not disappointed. Plenty of parking and the walk was not too bad at all compared to other places we've been to. Kids had a blast playing in the water. Numerous people had dogs running on the beach too so if dogs bother you it might not be for you. We don't have dogs but it was fun to watch them run and play in the sand. We even had a sea lion swim by as we played in the surf. We will definitely return when back in the area.

Great dog beach
Sep 2020
This is the place to let your dog run free at the beach in Santa Barbara. people were exercising with their dogs and everyone was respectful of there animals interactions with other dogs. Of course, you are on the beach in Santa Barbara so what's not to like! Anyway it was a great experience for us and our pups!

Overrated
Aug 2020 • Couples
It is a nice beach but I think it is overrated. They call it a hidden gem but it was overcrowded to be called a hidden gem. The parking isn’t easy and there a lot of dogs.in my opinion there are a lot of beautiful beaches in Santa Barbara that worth visiting.

Best Dog Friendly Beach
Jul 2020
Arroyo Burro Beach has a portion set aside for unleashed dogs. The best dog beach we have ever been. Beautiful setting with the ocean and high cliffs as the backdrop.

Tranquil beach with people walking dogs
Mar 2020 • Couples
There is the Boat House restaurant that was pretty busy when we were there. The beach is breezy with gentle waves. It is a mostly sandy beach that is eady to walk along the wave line. I enjoyed watching the dogs playing with the water. One side of the restaurant is leash-free; the other side requires leash. Above the beach is the Douglas Family Preserve with hiking trails. It is nice to go to both the beach and the Preserve for a different feel of the ocean view.

Beautiful SB Beach - Dog Friendly
Mar 2019
I lived next to this beach for 6 years, and thus here many times per week. From the entrance east is dog friendly. As with all beaches in SB, bring the baby oil to get the tar off your feet at the end of the day. Surfers are here most days.

I'm not making the parking situation any better but it must be said, this is a fantastic place to bring your dog(s). Ours LOVE it. Nearly all dog owners are fantastic and understand dog behavior so we our large scary looking ridgeback pup came bounding over to play with their dog, they were not fazed, which was a huge relief. She's better trained and behaved now but can still be considered fearsome looking. At this beach it's not a problem.
