Carpinteria Vacation Travel Information

Carpinteria State Beach in Carpinteria, California

Carpinteria State Beach is an excellent white sand beach right in the city of Carpinteria. The state beach starts at Linden Avenue and continues south to Tar Pits Beach at the south end of the park. In between these end points are several campgrounds with over 200 camping spots. At the day-use facility near Linden Avenue you’ll find all the amenities to enjoy a full day here and downtown Carpinteria is nearby with restaurants and shops. Tide pools can be seen at low tide at the south end of the beach near the San Miguel Campground. A lagoon at Carpinteria Creek in the center of the park is a great place for bird-watching. You can walk into the state park from Linden Avenue. If street parking in that area is difficult to find or if you plan on camping here, the main park entrance is on Palm Avenue which you can find on Carpinteria Avenue south of Linden. North of Linden Ave is Carpinteria City Beach where the wide sandy beach continues in front of beachfront homes. Due to tar seeps in the ocean offshore from the state park, tar balls can be found on the beach. Bring some olive oil or another natural oil to clean the tar off your feet at the end of your beach walk.
