Point Sal

State Beach - California

Point Sal State Beach is a beach on the Pacific coast of California, located near the city of Guadalupe, in the northwestern part of Santa Barbara County. This beach is at risk of landslides as there are rocky shorelines and extremely steep slopes. Among the most popular activities are fishing, beach combing, hiking, nature study, photography, picnicking and sunbathing. However, swimming is not recommended due to dangerous rip currents, absence of lifeguard service, and occasional shark sightings. Camping is prohibited due to security concerns involving Vandenberg Air Force Base, and anyone caught camping can be subject to citation, arrest, and eviction by the Park Rangers and/or the 30th Security Forces Squadron. There are also no recreational facilities (toilets, picnic tables, etc.)
