(4.5/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
Oxnard Beach Park is a public beach operated and maintained by the city of Oxnard, California at 1601 South Harbor Boulevard.DescriptionThe park is located along the California Coastal Trail and the Pacific Coast Bicycle Route. The park includes palm tree lined pathways and a bike/walking path connecting the communities of Oxnard Shores and Channel Islands Beach. There is also an easy bike/walking connection to Channel Islands Harbor. Oxnard Beach Park includes two spacious barbecue areas with a capacity of 200 occupants, each with a public sink, table, and a large grill. Activities include beachcombing, walking, and ocean swimming. The park was designed to protect the sand dunes between the beach and grass picnic area.HistoryJean Harris persuaded city of Oxnard leaders to adopt a grand vision in the creation of this park. The State of California initially purchased a 26-acre site for the park in 1979. The developer of an adjacent residential with a hotel site dedicated an additional 36 acres, giving the park its present size of 62 acres. With the adoption of an operating agreement between City and State in December 1983, plans were developed for this park that was initially called Oxnard State Beach. The park was transferred to City of Oxnard in 1998.Scenes from Oxnard Beach Park

  • On our last day of vacation we found this beach. I wish we would have skipped Santa Monica beach and just spent the day here. Quiet and clean for our family to unwind and take in the ocean views. We w...  more »
  • 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!  more »
  • 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.  more »

  • Incredible beach that's clean, safe, and fun for the whole family. There are paved paths that make it easy to to reach the shore which is just past the dunes that separate the picnic area from the beach. Fishing from shore is popular here there's plenty of room for all. Plan ahead to get a good spot for holidays but any other time there's no crowd at all.
  • Drove two hours just to get to this beach because of how wonderful my first experience was when I stayed at the Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach Resort. Had an ocean view room and remembered how beautiful, clean, and quiet this beach was. Albeit, this second time there were more people which is expected for Labor Day weekend. Definitely still quiet and clean regardless. -Room enough for everyone to have their personal space. -Love that it's dog friendly (if you leash and pick up their poop of course) when we brought a chihuahua and weimeraner. -Security drives around periodically to enforce rules which is comforting. -Bathrooms could be cleaner but I've seen worse. -Concrete and plastic paths leading to the beach which is great for coolers and feet. -Waves aren't big so my short self doesn't get swept away. Definitely recommend this beach to those who are tired of other packed and dirty SoCal beaches!
  • Beautiful park by the sea with a pirate themed playground for kids. There are several patios with BBQs for picnics and a large field.
  • Love the beach park with the sand and water behind it. The park is super family-orientated, clean and well maintained, and very big! Perfect for everyone! ⛵
  • Great for little kids of all ages or family time. Very close to the beach, within walking distance
