More Mesa Beach is a narrow beach hidden away below the bluffs of More Mesa Park in Santa Barbara. Due to its seclusion it has a reputation as a clothing-optional beach. The main access is at the end of Mockingbird Lane in the Vista La Cumbre development, but you can't park there so find a parking spot along Vieja Drive or Puente Drive and walk down Mockingbird.
After crossing the wide open mesa heading straight for the ocean, look in some trees to find the only way down the steep bluff. It's a steep path with steps to help keep your footing. If you turn right at the bottom of the stair it is a clothing-optional beach, but if you go left it is not (local rule). If you continue to the left for half a mile you'll be at Hope Ranch Beach. At high tide the beach here will be all wet and might not be passable at all.
