Goleta is a place you may find beauty in an area unexpected. The small college beach community of Isla Vista is a world within its own, to say the least. From spring days to long nights, the nature, wildlife and dirt trails along the beach at Coil Oil Point Reserve, Ellwood Butterfly Reserve, and the diverse, colorful wildlife along the tidepools at Devereux Point makes it a place worth stopping if you can seek out the best places to explore. Wonder along the cliffs to catch a golden sunrise and cotton candy colored sky at sunset above the sea as you breathe in serenity and wonder how the world is so beautiful. Find peace between the spirited events of the college life by the sea.
