Join us for the Jalama Beach Ride!
Join us for the Monthly Meeting & Ride to Jalama Beach on Saturday, April the 13th, that will take us about 250 miles with a lunch stop at Jalama Beach Store & Grill. Starting at Grinders in Moorpark at 0730, our Ride Captain, Danny, will lead us safely through the roads and have us back around 0430.

Jalama Beach is approximately an hour drive from Santa Barbara and a 45-minute drive from Lompoc. A sign 4.5 miles south of Lompoc off Highway 1 will direct you onto Jalama Road. Follow this scenic 14.5 mile road to the coast. The park entrance will be at the end of the road.

Land near Jalama Creek was once a Chumash Indian settlement named "Halama". In 1943, 23.5 acres of privately owned land was donated to the County of Santa Barbara from the Atlantic Richfield Oil Company, and thus, our park was formed. Jalama Beach is a respite from typically bustling seaside parks, yet offers many conveniences. Groceries, personal care sundries, firewood, fishing bait and tackle, ice, beer and wine may be purchased at the Jalama Store. Other services include mailing, facsimile, and video rentals. The store and its popular Grill are open daily from 8:00 am.

Jalama Beach is subject to high winds and rough surf. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months, however visitors swim at their own risk.

Day-use picnic areas provide tables and raised fire boxes. Additional activities include surfing, whale-watching, birdwatching, nature photography, and fishing the surf or rock outcroppings for perch, cabezon, kelp, bass, or halibut. Many protected California native plants like sand verbena, saltbush, and sea rocket, grow within park boundaries.

While you're here, visit the Jalama Beach Store and Grill and have a "World Famous Jalama Burger." They also have an extended menu that includes homemade clam chowder, chile verde and "Aunt Ruth's Raw Apple Cake."
