Hope Ranch Beach, a beach accessible to Hope Ranch residents and their guests, is a little piece of paradise. Enter through the secure gates (summer gatekeepers check guests in June through September) and find easy parking for both the beach, picnic areas and playground. A turn-around at the base of the parking lot allows for easy access for dropping off and picking up your surfboards, coolers, beach chairs and beach buddies. A tree-covered trail leads you to the beach from the parking lot. Bathrooms, outdoor showers and storage lockers are located at the beach cabanas at the base of the beach.
During summer months lifeguards are employed for everyone’s safety. Gentle waves are perfect for boogie boarding, surfing and kayaking. Sunset strolls down the beach are a treat for one and all. Walking toward Santa Barbara and Hendry’s Beach you will find wonderful tide pools and ocean treasures. This beach is truly a great asset to Hope Ranch residents.
