About Tajiguas Beach in Goleta, California

Tajiguas Beach is a narrow beach at the mouth of Tajiguas Creek west of Santa Barbara. There is a wider sandy spot with large rocks in the surf nearest the creek mouth, but otherwise the beach in this area is narrow. Parking can be found along the southbound lanes of Highway 101. To get here from the Santa Barbara area, continue north on the 101 past the Refugio Rd exit to the next intersection then head back on the southbound lanes and park in the first pull-out parking area. Tajiguas Beach is visible below this parking spot. Walk across the railroad tracks and down the embankment to reach the beach. The widest trail to the beach is at the north end of the linear parking area. Don’t get trapped by the tide if you walk far at lower tides. Arroyo Quemada Beach is north from here and Refugio State Beach is south.
