Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Preserve
Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Preserve Review
This spectacular preserve straddles the coast for 18 miles between Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. California's largest and most ecologically diverse dune system, this habitat shelters more than 200 species of birds as well as sea otters, black bears, bobcats, coyotes, and deer. The 1,500-foot Mussel Rock is the highest beach dune in the western states. About two dozen movies have been filmed here, including Cecil B. DeMille's 1923 silent epic The Ten Commandments. At the Dunes Center (1065 Guadalupe Street) in downtown Guadalupe, you can get nature information and view an exhibit about DeMille's movie set.
