Loon Point Beach in Carpinteria, California

Loon Point Beach Access is at the far west end of Padaro Lane just south of the small town of Summerland, CA. The beach here is amazing. High bluffs back the beach and it has a remote feel even though Highway 101 and a rail line isn’t far behind the beach. Locals have discovered this out of the way beach, but tourists are more likely to hit the city beaches in Santa Barbara and Carpinteria not far away.

Once on the beach, it is possible to walk (and beachcomb) all the way north to Lookout Park in Summerland. If you walk south far enough at low tide it’s possible to find tide pools below Loon Point. Surfers hit the right break east of Loon Point which is also accessible from Santa Claus Beach.

To get there, take exit 90 off Highway 101 and head toward the ocean, then look for the Loon Point Beach parking lot sign. From the parking lot you will walk a well-signed path to some railroad tracks, then under a car overpass, along a rock wall, and finally down a long ramp. There are toilets at the parking lot, but it’s quite a walk back there from the beach if nature calls. There are no facilities at Loon Point Beach itself.
