Jalama Beach Park
Jalama Beach Park is a 30 minute drive from the city of Lompoc California. On this scenic drive, just outside of city limits, you’ll see working ranches and vineyards along with scenic vistas around every bend.
Jalama Beach is a popular place for picnics, surfing, kite surfing, bird watching, nature photography, fishing and camping. Many protected California native plants like sand verbena, saltbush, and sea rocket, grow within park boundaries.
Day use is $10 per vehicle. Dogs can enjoy the beach for $3 per dog per day. Campsites start at $30 per night, reservations recommended (see below).
The onsite Jalama Beach Grill is open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and early dinner. Be sure to try the famous Jalama Burger — some say it’s the best they’ve every tasted! Is it the secret sauce? Just the right seasoning on the meat? The shredded lettuce? Or perhaps the amazing view that makes the Jalama Burger so darn delicious? Come try one, and tell us what you think!
Jalama is subject to high winds and rough surf. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months, however visitors swim at their own risk.
Beach Caves can be accessed along the sand – during low tide – about a mile north up the beach.
Spend the day at Jalama, then check into one of the nearby Lompoc hotels and motels. While in town you can also enjoy wine tasting, site-seeing in Old Town Lompoc, a skydiving adventure, a tour of La Purisima Mission, and great local restaurants.
