Surf Beach is located near Lompoc, at the west end of Ocean Ave. Public access is at the Amtrak Surf Station parking area. It’s a great spot for beach strolls and photography.
No fishing is allowed as it is part of Vandenberg State Marine Reserve. Surfing and body boarding are discouraged as this beach has been the site of two fatal shark attacks in recent years. Sorry, no dogs allowed.
Please note: The areas north and south of Surf Beach are closed March through mid-September to protect the Snowy Plover bird nesting spots.
