Camino Majorca Beach is accessible from a stairway at the corner of Camino Majorca road and Del Playa Drive in Isla Vista. Camino Majorca Beach is sandy but narrow. The bluffs above Camino Majorca Beach is an expansive open space with a lone picnic table. For people who live outside of Isla Vista but still in the general area, Camino Majorca is the go-to beach because it is the closest, it usually has parking, and it's on the perimeter of the student madness. It does require low tide, though. If the tide is too high one can't even get off the steps without jumping straight into crashing waves, though you can walk further along the bluffs to access dry sand.

Once on the sand, the beach extends west to Devereux Beach and continues around Coal Oil Point to Sands Beach in front of the Coal Oil Point Natural Reserve. To the east you pass the all the rest of Isla Vista beaches, and the main campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara, ending at Campus Point.

If your kids insist on a playground, 1/4 mile from the beach just past the end of Camino Majorca is Tierra de Fortuna Park. It is part of Kid's Trail that passes through the area and provides children and teachers with a car-free pathway from Isla Vista Elementary School to the beach.
