BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • When you want to take a break from the beaches and water, head to this sandstone cave about three miles above Santa Barbara.
  • The cave drawings date back to the 1600s.
  • The road to the cave is steep and narrow, and the pullout for the cave accommodates only one or two cars, so try to go on a weekday when there might be fewer visitors.
