Clean facilities and Parks staff are excellent. We love to get away to this nice beach and everyone we met was friendly. Not the typical beach crowd. Many fine food places within walking distance in town.

it is a great beach to walk and find unique looking sea shells and fun tide pools just watch out for tar balls or pieces of black tar wear shoes unless you like to scrape smelly tar off your feet make sure the shoes are your old ones you are about to throw away.

Clean, fun and unpretentious. While the tourists go to Santa Barbara, the locals can enjoy the more quiet Carpinteria.
