About Surfers Knoll Beach in Ventura, California

Surfer’s Knoll Beach is across from the restaurants and shops at Ventura Harbor Village. Surfers Knoll has its own small parking lot where Spinnaker Drive turns north, but you can park at the Village and walk across the street if it is full. This spot is obviously popular for surfing, but for most of us, it is an excellent spot for beach combing. From the parking lot the beach continues south in front of the Santa Clara River which is usually dammed up by sand allowing passage all the way to McGrath State Beach. McGrath SB doesn’t have a day-use area and the campground is frequently closed so you might have this entire area to yourself.
