Leadbetter Beach

Shoreline Dr & Loma Alta Dr, Santa Barbara, CA 93109, USA


Expansive ocean views on a lush Santa Barbara Beach

This front-and-center wedding location is right across the street from the beautiful campus of Santa Barbara City College. There is plenty of outdoor space at this location for any size wedding or party. Leadbetter is the northern end of Santa Barbara’s renowned East Beach and Cabrillo Boulevard; the beach wraps around so at Leadbetter you get a fabulous view of the whole Santa Barbara coastline. It is a public area and it is normally not closed off, so it is not necessarily the most exclusive wedding venue, but the warm, friendly, beachside atmosphere is hard to beat.

Pure Joy Catering,

Just a note to send a sincere thank you for a beautiful spread for our daughter and son in law’s pre wedding party. The food was amazing, the presentation beautiful and your staff was the nicest most accommodating we could have asked for.

Thank you,

Kate & Eric, Leadbetter Beach
