Where the sand meets the sea
Posted May 9, 2014 by William Etling
One of the truly great things about life here is an astonishing collection of beaches within a 30 minute drive. From Isla Vista‘s sweeping sands to the Guadalupe dunes, there are state parks (El Capitan, Refugio, Gaviota, Oso Flaco Dunes), free beaches, county parks (Goleta Beach, Jalama, Ocean Beach, Point Sal), even an Air Force beach (Surf), windswept and wild.
