Directions to Rincon Beach Park

Rincon Beach Park is 3 miles east of Carpinteria adjacent to the Santa Barbara/Ventura county line. From Highway 101 take the Bates Road turn-off south to the park entrance.  Get there early if you want parking.  There are two lots.  The lot to the left is smaller and gives you quick access to the beach.  If you park in the lot on the right you can access the beach by walking down to the left lot or you can take the stairs down to the beach located at the upper end of the lot.
