Gaviota Coast: SoCal's Celebrated Rural Shoreline
The Gaviota Coast features one of the most coveted shorelines in the state. It is Southern California's largest stretch of undeveloped coastline, containing approximately 50 percent of its remaining rural shores. Located in Santa Barbara County, this 76-mile swath of pristine beaches and idyllic landscapes passes through National Forest lands and five state and county parks. Recreational opportunities abound on the Gaviota Coast, which is why the California Coastal Trail plays such an integral role in the region's future. "The California Coastal Trail has been a complete success as a planning tool to increase coastal access," remarks environmental advocate and author John McKinney.
With plans to expand the trail, it is hoped that the Gaviota Coast will become more accessible to the public, contributing to a greater experience of this tranquil strand.
