About Oil Piers Beach in Ventura, California
Oil Piers Beach is the name of the long beach between the Ventura County communities of Mussel Shoals and Seacliff Beach Colony. This beach is right next to Highway 101 at the site of some oil piers that were removed in 1998. Another oil pier connects Mussel Shoals to a man-made oil platform called Rincon Island. This pier is visible from Oil Piers Beach as are the Channel Islands on a clear day. The shoreline south of the Rincon Island-Richfield Pier has mostly eroded away. This area is popular with surfers who enjoy the waves that break around the point at Mussel Shoals Beach. Oil Piers Beach used to be good for surfing too until the piers were removed and the shoreline changed. The Cliff House Inn in Mussel Shoals has a restaurant that serves lunch and dinner daily if you are planning to visit Oil Piers or Mussel Shoals.
To get to Oil Piers Beach, take exit 78 off Highway 101, then go north on Highway 1 to a road on the left that goes back under the 101. You can go right or left at the T-intersection, but the wider beach is to the right.
