We recently booked two cabins at Jalama Beach for a team weekend in December. The cabins came equipped with the works and the views (sunsets!) are breathtaking. The cabins were advertised as 5-person units, but I think families with small children better fit this mold...More

Came here for a quick visit with my spouse who grew up here. Very much a family campground/beach with the basics for a state park--and amazing beach. Watch out for the tar balls!

This beach is located close enough for a day trip even if its just to enjoy the famous Jalama Burger.

The burgers are so worth the 14 mile twisty road! I have a friend that didn't eat beef. We split a turkey burger, which I was not looking forward to. It was off the hook delicious. I honestly didn't even realize it wasn't beef.

Our intention was to find an uncrowded beach not too far from Santa Barbara to just sit and enjoy the ocean. The reviews of a train trestle near this County Park was an added incentive. After driving 14 miles on a winding road we reached...More

This beach is awesome. The sand was clean with not a lot of bugs. The campground area was also clean. I can't wait to go back.

Gorgeous place, out on a point, 180 degree views, and a campground wedding-caked up the side of a hill to offer lots of unimpeded enjoyment for a lot of happy campers. Winds can be quite testy here, be forewarned. The sand can blast your face...More

I am not aware of any bike rentals in the area. This beach is better suited for walking in the sand

If you are going just to eat, you can get free parking for one hour as long as you get the restaurant to stamp your pass. Otherwise, it's $10.00 for the day!
