Carpinteria Vacation Travel Information

Rincon Point State Beach in Carpinteria, California

Rincon Point State Beach is a separate unit of Carpinteria State Beach located at the border of Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. It’s a public beach right next to the private gated community of Rincon Point. This is a popular surfing spot for the right-hand waves that break around the east side of the point. Each year the Rincon Classic surf competition is held at this location. The beach itself is a narrow rock and sand strip at the access point and also in front of the homes. If you want a wider sandier beach, then go to Rincon Park County Beach across the street. To get to Rincon Point, take the Bates Road exit off Highway 101 about three miles south of Carpinteria. Turn on Bates Road toward the water where the Rincon Point Beach parking lot is on the left and the Rincon Park County Beach parking lot is on the right.
