The Arroyo Hondo Preserve is located west of Goleta, between Refugio State Beach and Gaviota State Park. It consists of 782 acres of pristine natural space offering an abundance of micro habitats that embody the Gaviota coast. With the Santa Ynez Mountains to the North and the Great Pacific Ocean to the South, enjoy a bounty of beautiful vistas offering views of the Channel Islands juxtaposed by sedimentary rocky outcroppings and towering peaks. 

  The beach is located at the Bacara Hotel.  Parking for the beach is before getting to the main lobby entrance adjacent to the tennis courts.  There is then a short walk down a path to the beach.  The Bacara is at 8301 Hollister Ave at the north end of Goleta off of Hwy 101 at exit 110 Winchester Cyn Rd.

The mouth of Tecolote Creek empties on the beach and was the site of numerous villages dating back thousands of years.  A short walk to the east will take you to Sandpiper Golf Club and gentle sloping hills.   To the west one can walk depending on the tides as far as Naples first passing Driftwood
