About Ormond Beach in Oxnard, California

Ormond Beach is the beach fronting the Ormond Wetlands and coastal farmlands near Oxnard in Ventura County. Ormond Beach fills a two mile gap between the city of Port Hueneme and the Naval Base Ventura County at Point Mugu. This is a well-known birding area with trails that follow a canal and the restored wetlands. The beach has a remote feel and is great for beachcombing or just for walking.

Behind the beach visitors will spot ugly remnants of an old smelter and a power generation plant. The California Coastal Commission is working with the county, city, and the Nature Conservancy to acquire property along Ormond Beach for preservation and restoration of wetlands.

The best access to Ormond Beach is from the end of Arnold Road at the south end of Ormond Beach, but it’s also possible to walk out there from Ocean View Drive at Port Hueneme Beach Park. There is a parking lot at the end of Perkins Road that has access to a small island in the wetlands, but it does not provide access to the beach on the ocean. South of Arnold Road is the Navy Base (NAS Point Mugu) which is closed to the public and fenced at the south end of Ormond Beach. Dogs, pets, camp fires, and kites are banned at the beach to protect the wetland birds.
