Goleta Vacation Travel Information

Gaviota State Park Beach in Goleta, California

Gaviota State Park Beach is a south-facing beach below a tall train trestle about 30 miles west of Santa Barbara and 25 miles southeast of Lompoc. The bridge has been nicknamed the “Ghost Bridge” and people have reported that the ghosts of two young girls roam Gaviota Beach and campground at night. Both ends of the beach have high steep bluffs that prevent beach exploration east and west at high tide. A public fishing pier with a boat hoist juts out from one side of the sandy beach and Gaviota Creek intermittently flows through on the other side. Behind the trestle there is a campground, a camp store, and a day-use parking lot. Nearby are excellent hiking trails in the state park and the adjacent Los Padres National Forest. There is even a hot spring, Gaviota Hot Springs, to hike into about 2.5 miles north on the highway from the main park entrance. The campground spaces can be reserved so inquire at the state park website.
