Jalama Beach Coast

Where in the world is Jalama Beach?  And why are we going there?  You may find the answers to your questions on November 8, when GPX will tour north to Santa Barbara County.

We are familiar and comfortable with the beaches of our metropolitan area, but all the coast of California is dotted with interesting, but not always accessible, beaches.  So let’s take a nice drive together, and visit a couple of different beaches to our north.

South of Pt. Conception (the great weather divide), the Santa Barbara County beaches are protected and benign, and very popular.  We might take a look at Refugio Beach on our way.

Refugio

North of Pt. Conception, the ocean is wild and wooly, and the first accessible point on the coast is Jalama Beach, reached by a narrow, winding county road.  Swimming is discouraged.There is a campground there, very crowded in the summer, and Jalama Beach Store, reputed to make the finest hamburgers in the land.  So bring your camera, your windbreaker, and your appetite, and join us on the last GPX tour of the year.

Road to Jalama BeachJalama Beach Store

We will start our drive in Ventura, at our usual rendezvous point, Carrow’s Family restaurant. From there it is about  65 miles to the junction of State Hwy 1.  Then 13 miles on State 1 to Jalama Road.  Then 13 more miles to the beach.  Driving time, less than two hours.

NOTE:  Blustery conditions are fine, but in the event of a heavy rainstorm in the area, we will cancel for safety reasons.  We will keep everyone informed by e-mail.

Suggested donation to the Children's Dental Health Clinic is $10.00 (Cash or check only - at time of check in)
