Gaviota State Park is a great, out of the way spot to get your fix of Southern California beach. The pier here offers fishing, while the shoreline is a great place for a stroll or swim. Deeper into the backend of the park, visitors enjoy camping, hiking, biking and plenty of wildlife watching. This park has some tricks up its sleeve, with a hot spring that visitors can enjoy and some killer views of the surrounding area. At night, the park gets winds that will knock your socks off (quite literally), so be sure to come prepared if you’ll be roaming around after 6 pm!
