Situated between Stearn’s Wharf and the Sea Landing/Harbor, West Beach offers a picturesque sandy area for sunbathing, swimming, picnics, kayaking, windsurfing, and beach volleyball. Large palm trees and a wide walkway/bike path make this beachfront area a popular tourist spot. West Beach is easily accessible and family-friendly.
This park area is commonly the site of large public special events, including our 4th of July celebration. Amenities near the beach include the West Beach Wading Pool, a playground, and Los Baños Pool. West Beach also provides public art, viewing plazas, and historical and interpretive signage.
The sandy beach is adjacent to the Small Craft Quiet Water Area which is a setting for many boating activities for: outriggers, sailboats, Chumash tomols (canoes), and rowing dories.
