Almost always crowded, reflecting its high consistency. Accessible by walking up from the small Miramar Beach/Eucalyptus Lane parking area.
Classic righthand cobblestone reefbreak in the wealthy town of Montecito. Occasional lefts. Well-shaped, lined-up wave with a few punchy sections. Holds considerable size and always offers classic rides on a good day. Medium tides with clean W swells work best here. Big S swells also get in, creating a welcome respite to long, flat Santa Barbara summers.
A beautiful reef break that has been spoiled somewhat by development. The big green lawn is gone but the waves still roll in. Needs a solid west swell to turn on. When good the locals will be on it and they deserve respect. Be mellow. The atmosphere dictates it. Good tubes on the right tide. Stays clean.
