About Harbor Cove Beach in Ventura, California

Harbor Cove Beach is the beach at the end of the peninsula in front of Ventura’s Harbor. Harbor Cove is protected by jetties and a breakwater so it is the best swimming beach in the Ventura area. Most of the other beaches near here have strong rip currents making them dangerous places to swim. Just a few steps away outside the south jetty is another Ventura Harbor Beach that can be violent with high surf. Harbor Cove Beach has a large parking lot near the end of Spinnaker Drive just past the Ventura Harbor Village Shopping Center. Across Spinnaker Drive is Island Packers Cruises where you can take a cruise to any of the Channel Islands. At the end of Spinnaker Drive is the visitor center for Channel Island National Park.
