Pet Friendly Arroyo Burro Beach (Hendry's Beach)
Arroyo Burro Beach (Hendry's Beach) This off-leash beach in City of Santa Barbara is the beach that runs below the Douglas Family Preserve -- it begins east of the slough at Arroyo Burro Beach (the locals call it Hendry's Beach), and stretches almost to the steps at Mesa Lane. The fallen eucalyptus trees are considered the eastern boundary. From the parking lot at Arroyo Burro, walk to the beach, turn left, and cross the slough -- this will bring you to the off-leash legal area. Please be sure your dog is leashed in the parking lot and on the beach until you cross the slough. See Details
