Hendry's Beach

Arroyo Burro Beach, widely known as Hendry's Beach by local residents, is a public beach in Santa Barbara, California. Located off of Cliff Drive, it is the terminus of Arroyo Burro Creek, and stands at the foot of the Santa Barbara coastal bluffs of the Wilcox Property (Douglas Family Preserve), which is adjacent to the east. The community of Hope Ranch is about one mile to the west.
Arroyo Burro has a reputation as a "dog beach", and is a popular location for dog owners to walk their pets off leash, though Arroyo Burro itself is actually on-leash (the off-leash area is just east below the Wilcox Property [Douglas Family Preserve]). Surfers also frequent the beach's waters, and outdoor showers facilitate the sport. The beach's other recreational features include a grassy area with picnic tables and barbecue grills, a restaurant and snack bar with outdoor and indoor seating. The park officially closes at sunset, at which time entrance to the (free) parking lot is prohibited. However, vehicles parked before sunset can remain into the evening hours.
The Hendry's Beach name is used by local residents, as the nearby farm land (now replaced by homes) was the home of Scottish immigrants William Nicol and Anne Stronach Hendry and their children. The Hendry family was there from the 1890s until about 1918.
