About Rincon Park County Beach in Carpinteria, California

Rincon County Park Beach is on the north side of Rincon Point next to a private gated community on the Santa Barbara County line. The shape of the point makes this beach a catch for driftwood and seaweed that can be piled up onshore sometimes during the year. Lifeguards are not present, but swimming is still common here. Walking on the beach all the way to Carpinteria Bluffs is possible, just note that the remote northern section of beach might have some clothing-optional folks.

The parking lot sits high above the sandy beach below. There is a tall stairway and a long graded ramp for access from the bluff top to the beach. To get there, take the Bates Road Exit from Highway 101 just south of Carpinteria and drive toward the water. Rincon County Park is to the right and Rincon Point State Beach (a surfing mecca with a narrow rocky beach) is the parking lot on the left.
