Nice Ride along the water

Hop on a bike and enjoy the view of the beach, ocean and sailboats. Make sure you stop at the Shoreline Cafe for drinks at the end of the day.

This is a wonderful investment. Thank you Santa Barbara. My guess is that it approximately three miles long.

When I was recovering from surgery this was a nice flat smooth long stretch of a path. On a sunny day it is nice to walk and see the variety of activities on the beach and ocean. Busy on the weekends so don't expect to fly along. A great variety of folks on foot and wheels of every sort. Yesterday... More

A great way to see the beach in Santa Barbara. It starts at the bird sanctuary & goes to Shoreline park. Great on Sunday to see the art displays.

The lane was quite wide, very well marked and provided plenty of room for cars to navigate around the cyclists w/o disrupting the flow of traffic. OFF the coastal path was another story.

Bike paths on Santa Barbara coastline are beautiful and the Cabrillo path is the best. If traffic concerns you this might bother you, but I have ridden it many times with no problems.

Perfect way of site seeing. The bike path was great.. it's nicely paved, easily to follow, and never too crowded. It's right by the ocean, so as you ride you get the most gorgeous views on both sides- mountains, and ocean. It's such a relaxing ride, and a great way to see the different Santa Barbara sites along the water!... More

Beautiful well maintained walk with easy access to beach and pier. Stay on beach side of road as inland side does not have continuous sidewalk. Light at night is adequate for seeing your way.
