Setting

The park lies at the southern end of the north coast of Ventura County, where the Santa Barbara Channel coastline is bordered by the Santa Ynez Mountains and coastal cliffs formed by eroding marine terraces.

Pacific Coast Highway, railroad tracks of the Coast Line, and the US Highway 101 freeway wind along the narrow strip of the county's north coast land at the base of the mountains for 12 miles (19 km) north to the Santa Barbara County line. Over 70 percent of this shoreline, with narrow sandy beaches and rocky tidepools, is accessible via state- or county-owned parks and other properties.
