The Arroyo Burro Beach Park, known as Hendry's Beach to the locals, is situated on the shoreline of the Pacific Ocean, in Santa Barbara, California. This beach is frequently visited by dog owners because dogs are permitted to venture both inside the water and on the beach!
Arroyo Burro Beach welcomes all dogs with open paws, as long as you keep your pup on leash while on the main beach. They’re allowed to cool off and enjoy splashing in the waves with you if they're up for a swim! If you would like, let your pooch roam free in an area east of the creek where off-leash dogs are permitted. Remember to bring drinking water and clean up bags for your pup to keep them hydrated, and the beach clean! After your walk and swim, take advantage of the shower stations to freshen up your pup before taking them home!
There's no questioning why this beach is a local favorite, as it offers visitors a variety of opportunities and activities to choose from. While walking your pooch along the pristine shoreline, you can catch a glimpse of a whale, or watch the surfers take on the waves. Surf fishing, swimming, hiking and picnicking are other popular activities at Arroyo Burro Beach Park. Not to mention the seasonal life guards improve swim safety, if you plan to bring the kids.
The beach is equipped with modern amenities for guests to enjoy. You can grab a bite to eat at the restaurant or, if you'd prefer, make your own food on the public BBQ Grills. Clean restrooms are also conveniently located on the beach.
If you live in the Santa Barbara or you're just passing through, Arroyo Burro Beach Park is a must see for you and your pooch. Not only does it offer guests a multitude of amenities, but your pup also has the freedom to roam off-leash and in the water!
