Refugio State Beach
Refugio State Beach, Santa Barbara, CA
Type: Saltwater-OpenOcean
Difficulty: Snorkling, Beginner, Intermediate
Entry: Easy Shore Entry , Boat Access
Attractions: Boulder Pile / Shelves, Kelp Forest

Refugio is a pleasant dive with easy shore access with all the comforts of a state beach such as public showers, toilets, and a snack bar that is open during summer months. There are camp sites on site too.

There are two reefs, one at each end of the cove. The Eastern reef is a short swim (about 50 yards) and only about 20-25 deep. The western reef is out farther from shore by the entrance to the cove, just past the breakers. It can be a tiring swim in scuba gear but it is a little bit deeper (about 30) and gives a change of scenery. Both sites are good for free divers. Common critters include sea hares, nudibranchs, sponges, stars and anemones plus fish such as opaleye, sheephead, calico bass, and senorita wrass.
