For outdoor activities and plenty of fun, there's no better place than Bacara Resort & Spa. Nestled on the bluff and beaches of the Santa Barbara coast, Bacara Resort & Spa's ideal location offers access to a variety of outdoor attractions, including scenic Santa Barbara hiking, water-sport adventures and surf lessons.
Enjoy a leisurely walk through the resort’s Mediterranean village, with meandering paths, wonderful gardens and lovely village views. Or, tackle the hiking trails that extend beyond the resort, including the Beach Run, an easy-going, mile-long trail with spectacular ocean views, with plenty of opportunities to enjoy Bacara’s native plants and animals (take your camera because the foliage is uniquely beautiful and the bunnies are plentiful).
There are two more ambitious trails – the Nature Loop Run for intermediate hikers (2.5/3 miles) and the Santa Barbara Shores Run for advanced athletes (4/4.5 miles). The hotel concierge can provide a map that includes all three routes.
This walk will take you through the village of Bacara and introduce you to the environment and surroundings. You will see some of the native plants to this area and see spectacular views of the Santa Barbara region.
