San Buena Ventura State Beach

Entrance at San Pedro Street

Two miles of sandy beach and natural sand dunes make up the family-friendly San Buena Ventura State Beach.

Along with swimming, this is a fun place for boogie-boarding, playing beach volleyball (the courts are already setup), and having a picnic.

The large park area just on the other side of the dunes has many picnic tables and free standing barbeque grills.


There’s also a snack bar and rental site nearby if you wish to rent beach-equipment, bikes or 4-wheel cycles.

A great bike/jogging trail also loops through the park and connects the state beach to pier, c-street, and downtown.

If you’re really ambitious, you can actually head all the way up to Hobson County Park!

This park host many events including corporate games and volleyball tournaments and can be busy on weekends.

Dogs are allowed in the park but not on the beach. If you need to keep up with your Facebook friends, however, you’ll be able to do so since the San Buenaventura State Beach now offers AT&T Wi-Fi Service. How’s that for progress!

Cost: Day Use only is $8.00 per vehicle
