About San Buenaventura State Beach in Ventura, California
San Buenaventura State Beach takes up about two miles of the waterfront in Ventura. It stretches from Marina Park near the Ventura Harbor all the way north to the Ventura City Pier. It’s the perfect place for picnics, sunbathing, and beach walking.
The widest part of this beach is the section in front of the park at the main entrance. At this location there is a paved pedestrian and bike path that runs between the park and the dunes. This path, the Omer Rains Bike Trail, heads north to the pier and all the way to Emma Wood State Beach eight miles away making it a great bike ride.
There are two parking areas for San Buenaventura State Beach. The main entrance is at the north end of Pierpont Boulevard at San Pedro Street where a large grass park with picnic tables is the site of many special events. The northern parking lot off East Harbor Boulevard provides access to the beach near the Ventura Pier.
South of San Pedro Street, the beach is in front of homes the entire way. At Seaward Avenue there is a city-provided parking lot with beach access.
