Gorgeous views of the Channel Islands!

The Beach offers excellent views of the Channel Islands! You might even see a migrating whale or a dolphin pod! Clean beaches well patrolled unfortunately no free parking!

This is a good beach and it's one of my favorites. It's long and perfect for walks along the coast. Some areas are more popular and others have fewer people, but it's a nice beach overall.

Easy access from Harbor Blvd. Close to beach park with handicap access. Not crowded. No lifeguards. West facing with great views of the Santa Barbara Channel and the Channel Islands but quite windy much of year. Spectacular sunsets.

One thing about the southern california beaches is that there well cared for. I like places that are safe, clean, and well taken care of. and you never know who you'll meet there.

Great escape for the day at the beach. Sandy beaches and surf, with a playground added in. Close to Oxnard for quick trip to the beach. Hope you can enjoy soon.

Just oK, wouldn't recommend. It was dirty, people don't throw their trash in the trash bins. Smells of fish and seaweed.

Came here with the family. This place is real nice as beaches goes. Like all Southern California Beaches the water is cold and the waves can be HUGE! Not the best place for little kids as it also get deep pretty quick. The park is awesome as well. Kids loved it.

Nice beach but be careful as you get closer to the water the sand dips and this causes the waves to crash in,

We have been to this beach on several occasions and we have noticed that this place seldom gets a big crowd. There were sand dunes and the sand was smooth. The beach was relatively clean during our visits. There's a very well kept and well-manicured park where people can play outdoor games while having a picnic. The park charges a... More
