Santa Barbara Beach Bum

Surf a Wave, Ride a Bike, Get a Tan

Love the sand and sun? We have the perfect itinerary for your day at the beach. Just don't forget to lather on that sunscreen!

  • Ride the waves at Santa Claus Lane Beach. The dudes at A-Frame Surf Shop will set you up with surfing lessons, gear and apparel. Info: 3785 Santa Claus Lane, Carpinteria; 805.684.8803; aframesurf.com.
  • Dress like a native. Get board shorts, bikinis and other swimsuits, flip-flops, sunscreen and all the gear to look beach ready at Beach House. Info: 10 State St., 805.963.1281, surfnwear.com.
  • Pedal down the beach. Santa Barbara Bikes To-Go delivers top-of-the-line bicycles to your hotel room. Pick your pedaling preference: road bikes, mountain bikes, cruisers, kid/pet trailers-they've got 'em! Info: 805.617.3364.
  • Dig into a Beach Burger at Shoreline Beach Café, right on Leadbetter Beach, as you dig your toes in the sand. You can't dine any closer to the water than this. Info: 801 Shoreline Drive, 805.568.0064.
  • Beach hop: There's a stretch of sand for every mood. East Beach and Leadbetter Beach are near all the action like volleyball and water sports. Butterfly Beach in Montecito is perfect for romantic strolls. 
  • Savor sunset with a beer, a bowl of chowder and a good buddy at Brophy Bros. overlooking the harbor. Info: 119 Harbor Way, 805.966.4418.
