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

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
