Santa Barbara holidays are ideal for those looking for sunshine

Santa Barbara holidays feature pristine beaches, scenic views, and amazing natural wonders. 22 miles off the coast of Santa Barbara are the Channel Islands, or the “Galapagos of North America”. This is the perfect location for swimming, wildlife spotting, snorkelling, diving, and even overnight camping!
Santa Barbara is teeming with fun things to do and explore. Foodies will want to check out Stearns Wharf to sample the incredible fresh seafood – you can even buy fish straight off the boats.
Beach lovers will enjoy the beautiful Butterfly Beach where you can catch both sunrise and sunset out over the ocean due to its east-west facing shoreline.
For anyone looking for an adventure, Santa Barbara’s Channel Islands are an amazing location to make unforgettable memories. On the Channel Islands you will be able to spot wildlife like harbour seals, California sea lions, California Brown Pelicans and more! Whale Watching cruises are also available around the Channel Islands if visiting in the right season – there are 27 species of whales and dolphins off the coast of Santa Barbara, including the Blue Whale, so this is sure to be an incredible experience! Snorkelling and Kayaking tours are also available and offer an up-close look at the Islands, take you through the kelp forests and into sea caves. Santa Barbara is also home to fantastic hotels, including the exclusive The Ritz-Carlton Bacara where you will sleep in absolute luxury.
