Over a century ago, Hollywood cinematographers and location scouts discovered Oxnard’s breathtaking beaches!

In fact, it was in 1921 that Paramount Studios found Oxnard’s sprawling coastline to be the perfect stand-in for the Egyptian desert because of the vast sandy beach, prompting it to film Rudolph Valentino’s The Sheik here. Other known films including Spartacus, Only You, It’s a Mad, Mad World, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and Back to the Future were also filmed at Hollywood Beach. Other Hollywood studios and stars were soon to follow. Clark Gable bought a home here. Charlie Chaplin headed to Oxnard when he needed a respite and John Wayne made fishing his sport while vacationing in Oxnard. Since the 1920s Hollywood stars have sought refuge at this gorgeous beach, and now you can too!

Silver Strand Beach is a level, white sand beach that fronts a small pocket community in Oxnard.

The beach stretches one mile from the mouth of Channel Islands Harbor to Point Hueneme, at the mouth of Port Hueneme Harbor. La Janelle Park sits on Point Hueneme at the south end of the sandy beach. The park borders the Port Hueneme Naval Construction Battalion Center, which nearly surrounds Port Hueneme Harbor. This hike strolls along the oceanfront from Channel Islands Harbor to La Janelle Park.

In April, 1970, the S.S. La Jenelle, a 12,000-ton pleasure ship, ran aground in a storm. The wreck, just offshore of Point Hueneme, was filled with rocks and converted into a fishing jetty. The park and offshore area is now a popular fishing and surfing spot, this beach is home to many full time residents.

Public restrooms are at the north end of the beach and parking is free from sunrise to sunset in two lots: one adjacent to San Nicholas Road, and the other adjacent to Sawtelle Avenue. Lifeguards patrol seven days a week between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
