Ride to Jalama State Beach for a Burger
Jalama Beach is approximately an hour’s drive from Santa Barbara and a 45-minute drive from Lompoc. A sign 4.5 miles south of Lompoc off Highway 1 will direct you onto Jalama Road. Follow this scenic 14.5-mile road to the coast. The park entrance will be at the end of the road. Jalama is subject to high winds and rough surf. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months, however, visitors swim at their own risk.
Day-use picnic areas provide tables and raised fireboxes. Additional activities include surfing, whale-watching, birdwatching, nature photography, and fishing the surf or rock outcroppings for perch, cabezon, kelp, bass, or halibut. Many protected California native plants like sand verbena, saltbush, and sea rocket, grow within park boundaries.
While you’re here, visit the Jalama Beach Store and Grill and have a “World Famous Jalama Burger.” They also have an extended menu that includes homemade clam chowder, chile verde, and “Aunt Ruth’s Raw Apple Cake.”
