About Mandalay State Beach in Oxnard, California

Mandalay State Beach is a protected area of beach, dunes, and wetlands between a power generation plant and the Oxnard Shores neighborhood of Oxnard, CA. This is a popular place for birding. Some of the beach is fenced off to protect nesting areas of the Least Tern and Snowy Plover. Mandalay State Beach is on state park property, but is managed by Ventura County so it is called Mandalay Beach County Park too. You can get here by driving north on Harbor Boulevard to 5th Street and turning toward the ocean. Park on the shoulder of Mandalay Beach Road or 5th Street. Walk north to get away from the homes and be thankful that the state decided to protect this area from development. If you walk south, the beach continues in front of the homes along Mandalay Beach Road all the way to Oxnard Beach Park and beyond to Hollywood Beach.
