The city of Sanditon was founded in 1854 by George Denham as a mining town at the tail end of the California Gold Rush. But by 1866, the town was already transitioning to a seaside getaway. The mines closed by 1868, and the first businesses dedicated solely to tourism sprang up by 1870. The famous Sanditon Boardwalk opened in 1911, bringing with it a prosperous sixty years, but in 1977 was badly damaged by a severe winter storm. Under the leadership of our new mayor, Tom Parker, Sanditon is redefining itself for the 21st century.
Sanditon perches beside the clear ocean of the California coastline, and visitors to our fair city find themselves unable to resist taking a dip in the water. Our crystalline white beaches are perfect for a brisk morning run, an afternoon round of volleyball, or an evening swim. The salt from the ocean permeates the air, enveloping the entire city in a mild speleotherapeutic treatment to soothe the lungs. Even our least healthy visitors leave the city feeling refreshed and renewed.
Quaint local attractions dot the seaside town of Sanditon. From evenings at the Sanditon Cinematheque watching films of days gone by to theme nights at our local businesses, from the bustling city library to the vibrant farmer’s market filled with organic food and live music, the residents of Sanditon know how to have a good time. Our famed Opening of the Beaches ceremony every Memorial Day allows for the artistic side of Sanditon to come out, as local artists and performers display their work for the community. Our Fourth of July weekend promises food, fun, and fitness: one of our many offerings for the weekend is a guided hiking tour of the mountains along Sanditon, including the best places to see the fireworks.
