Santa Barbara

Once nicknamed 'California's best-kept secret', Santa Barbara is now synonymous with the highlights that made it so famous: golden curved beaches, breathtaking views and year-round sunshine - with palm trees swaying in the breeze. Santa Barbara's iconic white stucco buildings with their colourful tiled roofs line the streets of this lively town, whose shopping, dining and entertainment options have as much to offer as its stunning natural surroundings.
