Carpinteria Beach

Carpinteria Beach, directly across the street from Sunset Shores, provides opportunity for many water sports – surfing, kayaking, and snorkeling to name a few – and smaller breaks, perfect for beginners, make it a perfect place to swim.

Anchored rafts are placed in the water from mid-June through Labor Day and boogie boards, kayaks, umbrellas, and other beach going equipment are available to rent from the city owned beach store.

Volleyball, sunbathing, and picnics are also popular everyday activities at Carpinteria Beach while Rincon Point – just south of Carpinteria Beach – is considered among the finest surfing spots in the world.

Play golf and tennis nearby, go for a hike, bike tranquil mountain roads, or take a short drive to Santa Barbara, with its historic mission and scenic harbor.

The Spot

An easy and scenic daytrip farther north is the quaint Danish village of Solvang and the Santa Ynez Valley where winery tours and wine tasting are a great way to spend the day. Explore mystical Ojai or simply stay put and enjoy the small town pleasures of Carpinteria.
