Please Note: For the current status of this park, please call (805) 968-1033. Beach condition advisory: This past winter, storms and high waves eroded much of the sand on the beach at this park, exposing cobble rocks, particularly south of the pier. The beach area with the most sand is next to the main day-use parking lot. This beach features swimming, surfing and picnicking. The beach has two miles of sandy beach, sand dunes, picnic sites, a parking lot, a snack bar and a beach-equipment rental shop. Bike trails connect other nearby beaches. The beach is the site for a number of special events, such as the Pirate Festival, triathlon, and volleyball tournaments. A 1,700-foot pier has a snack bar, restaurant and bait shop.

Flat, easy and fun. Walk on the promenade or the sand. You can go as far E as Marina Park and W, gee, I think to Solimar. Lots of fun. Easy and relaxing. Take a little windbreaker, especially if you start out after 10 AM, even if you don’t think you’ll need it. I live along the promenade and there’s only maybe 5 days out of an entire year that the wind isn’t blowing in from the west...

Great city. Beautiful. Parking is free in some sections of beach. Empty on weekdays. Train stops right in front of Ventura county fairgrounds.

Beach views but lots of traffic nearby. Ending up at the pier is amazing.

Easy and great view of the ocean and pier. On clear days you can see Anacapa and Santa Cruz Islands! The path is a bit bumpy for a beach cruiser but a really nice jog/walk and still very enjoyable bike ride

This is a really great little walk, especially if you park farther away from the trailhead and run back on the sand!

Wish it was way longer! Love riding my bike over there, but much too short.
