With general information and directions to the local dune access points and other points of interest, the Dunes Center is a must see for anyone interested in traveling through the Central Coast and the Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes. We also have a variety of educational opportunities in the Center with different animal specimens, interactive activities, as well as a collection of short films about the local area.
The Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Complex is comprised of 18 miles of coastline and is one of the most ecologically significant and largest intact coastal dune ecosystems on Earth. A significant portion of the nearly 22,000 acres is under public management and open for recreation. General information and directions to the local dune access points are available at our Interpretive Center and online.
