Hendry’s Beach, as it’s knownby local residents, is a public beach inSanta Barbara County, California. Its official name is Arroyo Burro Beach. It is a great beach to take your furry friends to, as it’s apopular 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 PropertyDouglas 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, the Arroyo Burro County Park building which houses a restaurant and snack bar with outdoor and indoor seating. The park officially opens at 8:00am and closes at sunset.
