Pocket Guide: Green / Sustainable Hotels in Santa Barbara

Aa hundred miles north of LA, the chic, laid-back city of Santa Barbara has a Mediterranean climate and more than 300 days of sunshine each year. It's renowned for its beautiful palm-lined beaches, lush green parks and healthy SoCal cuisine, and is perfect for an eco-friendly stay near the beach or for a mountain retreat.

Green Hotels in Santa Barbara

The standard of accommodation in Santa Barbara is particularly high, yet caters for all budgets. Find eco-minded chain hotels in Goleta, just a few miles along the coast from downtown Santa Barbara. Or venture out to the boho town of Ojai, on the fringes of the Los Padres National Forest, for mid-range inns with a sustainable bent, as well as lush gardens and open-air pools.

Hotels near Santa Barbara's Parks

Book a hotel in upmarket Mesa district or Stearns Wharf, and you'll be within walking distance of both the blonde sands of Leadbetter Beach and the popular Shoreline Park, a coastal park with a kids' playground, a whale-watching area and a Japanese garden.

Ellings Park, two miles east of Shoreline, is the city's largest green space and offers play areas, tennis courts and running trails.

Santa Barbara's Organic Wine and Dining Scene

Southern Californian is renowned for its healthy, vitamin-rich cuisine. Head to one of the many laid-back restaurants and taquerias off downtown's State Street, many of which specialise in farm-to-table SoCal cuisine.

Visit artisan chocolate shops, organic grocers and small-batch coffee shops dotted around State Street, or visit the tasting rooms and wine co-operatives in the Funk Zone, the city's vibrant arts district.

Getting around Santa Barbara

Book a sustainable hotel in Santa Barbara's downtown and most attractions, dining and shopping districts are within easy walking distance. The Amtrak station is at the bottom of downtown's State Street, a short stroll from the beach, and you can get to Santa Barbara’s outer suburbs on a shoreline shuttle or the MTD bus routes.
