Paradise Beach in Guadalupe, California

Paradise Beach is situated along a remote section of the northern Santa Barbara County coastline between Point Sal and Mussel Point (see our map linked above). Access to this long sandy beach over land requires a long rugged walk on old jeep roads from Point Sal Road near Point Sal State Beach or a three mile long hike on the beach, over massive Mussel Rock Dunes, and along sandy trails from Rancho Guadalupe Dunes County Park. Either route is an arduous trip which makes this beach one of the least visited in all of California.

At the north end of Paradise Beach there is a rock arch sticking up out of the sand. From the trail at Point Sal you can look down on Lion Rock which usually has birds and possibly seals or sea lions on top.
