A must-visit destination in Oxnard.
If you're searching for a California classic golden beach, dunes, and pristine weather, look no further than Hollywood Beach. It's a must-visit destination in Oxnard.
The beach is vast, so there’s plenty of space to set up your beach tent or umbrella and build sandcastles along the shoreline with your kids. Add the Channel Islands Harbor to your visit, and you’re in for a memorable experience.
Hollywood Beach is named for its popularity among movie stars at the turn of the twentieth century. Clark Gable lived here and Rudolph Valentino filmed a movie here. This beach is so relaxing and pristine, and it’s no wonder Hollywood stars bought real estate here.
Visitors can also explore Channel Islands Harbor and enjoy stand-up paddleboarding, jet skis, electric boats, bike rentals, kayaking, and parasailing.
Dolphins are frequently seen frolicking in this area, and seals and sea lions occasionally come to shore to sun themselves before returning to the water. Just remember, it’s normal for them to spend hours at a time on the beach, so just be careful around them and keep your distance.
Hollywood Beach is located on Harbor Blvd in Channel Islands Harbor.
