Pocket Guide: Santa Barbara Carpinteria State Beach Hotels

Located 11 miles southeast of Santa Barbara is the relaxed beach town of Carpinteria, known for its sandy beaches, quirky shops and laid-back surf vibe. Carpinteria State Beach is the main attraction and often regarded as one of the world’s safest beaches thanks to its flat white sands and gentle reef-protected waters.

Hotels near Carpinteria State Beach

Accommodation near Carpinteria State Beach ranges from roadside motels, beachfront B&Bs and cool hotels, many with the iconic red-tiled roofs and Spanish-style decor familiar to Santa Barbara County.

You’ll find several roadside inns and chain hotels – some with pools and restaurants – along Carpinteria Avenue, a ten-minute walk from Carpinteria’s beaches and the shops, bars and diners on Linden Avenue.

Attractions at Carpinteria State Beach

Carpinteria State Beach is a mile-long stretch of white sand and is great for swimming, fishing and rock-pool exploring, where you can discover starfish, anemones and sea urchins. It’s also a popular hangout for seals and sea lions, who live in the area between December and May. Time it right and you could also see pods of gray whales as they migrate south.

Visiting Carpinteria State Beach

Carpinteria State Beach is at the southern end of Palm Avenue, a short stroll from Carpinteria’s main drag. The beach is open every day and lifeguards keep watch as you play in the water and rock pools. Picnic areas make lunching a sand-free affair and when you need some time off the beach, take a shower and head to the visitors’ centre or take the kids to the play area.

Hotels near Carpinteria’s Bar and Dining Scene

After hanging out at Carpinteria Beach all day, head back to your Carpinteria hotel before heading out to enjoy the casual surf-style bars and Californian eateries along Linden Avenue.
