Rincon Point is a small, gated community adjacent to Rincon Beach. This beach is world-famous for its three surf breaks. The Rincon Classic surf competition is held here each January and you will be just steps away from the action. Besides surfing, it's also a beautiful place for beach-combing, swimming, and sunbathing.
Rincon Point is just five minutes away from the beach town of Carpinteria, where you will find groceries, restaurants, banks, shops, and everything else you might need. Carpinteria State Beach has a seal rookery, where you can see hundreds of harbor seals from the bluffs above. Carpinteria is also home to the Avocado Festival in October, and the Rods & Roses Classic in June.
Our house is less than 20 minutes south of Santa Barbara. Here you will find the Zoo, Mission, Botanical gardens, Museums, and the popular State Street shopping and restaurant district. You can rent bicycles to ride along the beach, go whale-watching or deep-sea fishing, take a trip to the Channel Islands, or watch a polo game.
If you choose to venture out, there are many activities for you and your family to enjoy. But the house is large and comfortable enough that you might want to just stay put and enjoy the beach!
